Genesee County to Pay Flint $1 Million for River Water as Backup Source
Genesee County will pay the city of Flint approximately $1 million a year to use Flint River water as a backup water source. The county needs to have a backup source of water in case of emergency, such as a major pipeline break, power outage or contamination. The water would be treated, just like the water that the city currently gets from Detroit.
