300 Plumbers Come to Flint to Install Filters [VIDEO]
"We did not cause this American tragedy in Flint, but we certainly can help correct the damage that has been done!"
Over the weekend, more than 300 plumbers from all over the state came to our city to install filters for residents who are affected by the water crisis. The filters that were provided for citizens didn't fit all filters, and some of them were nearly impossible to install. Plumbers with United Association Local 370 have been going door-to-door since October to help residents install their filters, but this weekend, they received a helping hand...hundreds of them.
Plumbing Manufacturers International donated the faucets, which cost about $100 a piece. Over 800 filters were installed on Saturday alone.
