NBC, USA, Inc. Responds to Flint, Michigan Water Crisis
Would you drink or bathe in this water?
That's what the people of Flint, MI were asked to do beginning in April 2014 when their water supply was diverted from Detroit, MI to the Flint River in an effort to save money. Needless to say, the residents of Flint are sufferring from various illnesses, some of the more serious a result of lead poisoning in young children. Following a public outcry and numerous water studies and media attention, the water supply was diverted back to Detroit in October 2015. Here's a timeline of events (click image to enlarge):
