The problem began when in April 2014 the city of Flint temporarily changed its water source from Lake Huron to the Flint River to save money. The different chemistry of the river water corroded the city's old pipes, releasing huge amounts of lead into the drinking water. I’ve been tracking this too. Who the hell was in charge? Old pipes like that are usually coated with calcium plaque. It would take a while to eat away the calcium. Someone did not check the water’s pH or do any chemical...
