Flint’s Water Situation is Still Screwed Up

Stephanie Parkinson:

Thousands of people in Flint are at risk of losing their homes to foreclosure if they don’t pay up on their water bills. After recently putting out shut-off notices the city is now back to threatening tax liens on people’s homes.

This is water that is still not potable, and has been broken since about 2014. Three fucking years and going.

Way back in 2014 General Motors stopped using the town’s tap water during assembly because it was corroding engines.

Meanwhile there are plans to cut the EPA’s budget instead of reinvigorating it to clean up the water supply.
