Flint’s Water’s Lead Content Is Now Safer Than Bottled Water

According to both city and independent testing, Flint Michigan’s prior water crisis (due to the presence of lead), is now testing at 4 parts per billion, whereas the restrictions for bottled water production are limited to 5 parts per billion.

The process of replacing the affected piping is scheduled to be completed by 2019, but is already showing to be in the clear according to testing of homes believed to be of high risk of receiving contaminated water.

The project to repair it has been underway for years now, although memes and social media arguments still seem to bicker that ‘something needs to be done’ or ‘why hasn’t something been done yet.’
