Flint Water Lead Levels May Be Too High for Filters to Work
A new report says that Flint water tests are returning some terrifying results.
According to NBC25, water test results from some areas are still showing extremely high lead levels. About two dozen samples showed lead levels higher than 150ppb, which is 10x higher than the EPA action level, and too high for the filters to be effective.
This is especially troubling news, because the city switched back to Detroit water in mid-October and the it still isn't drinkable for some. Earlier this week, Governor Snyder indicated that there were no immediate plans to start replacing Flint's lead service lines. Instead, he is relying on the "experts" who say the short-term fix of "coating the pipes" is the best option.
Yeah, because when have "experts" ever failed the city before?
