Like you my first question is would you drink it? Of course it will be treated, but can you treat Flint River water enough? Why is it even an option?News is coming in that the Flint River could be resident's primary source for drinking water. Currently we get our drinking water from the Detroit Water and Sewage Department but not for long.  In one year, our current water source will be terminated and we need help.  City of Flint Officials have already worked out a deal to receive water from Lake Huron but building the pipeline will take some time.

The water plant in Genesee County will start treating the water to get it ready for residents but I don’t think people will be happy about it.  There are several upgrades necessary to treat the Flint River that are too expensive for our current budget. More below.
