Your DGB for this Throwback Thursday is to keep Flint, Michigan’s bottled water program running.
Flint has been without safe tap water for 1,336 days now in what continues to be a massive infrastructure failure. Pipe replacement is still underway in many places. The tap water is allegedly testing closer to safe levels of metals in some areas, leading to threats to reevaluate the state-run bottled water program by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. https://www.theroot.com/flint-state-may-reconsider-free-bottled-water-program-1821141898
Employees of this office have been criminally charged in the #FlintWaterCrisis, striking plea deals as recently as this week, so forgive us if we give them the side-eye.
Today, you’ll tweet @MichiganDEQ to let them know we see them and they need to keep safe drinking water available to the humans they’re charged with protecting.
