  • Today is: October 8, 2015
  • Hey kids! Today, I'm going to tell you guys about the water crisis going on right here, in Flint Michigan.
  • It all started when Flint was having some financial problems. They needed to save money so they hired some advisors to give advice on what to spend less money on....
  • They decided they could save money by getting water from Lake Huron instead of Detroit. Before they could finish setting up these new systems, they temporarily got water from the Flint River.
  • Clean Water
  • The problem with Flint's water was it was very corrosive. When the water went through lead pipes, the lead got stuck in the water and caused peoples water to be highly contaminated with lead.
  • Contaminated Water
  • CORROSIVE: destroy or damage (metal, stone, or other materials) slowly by chemical action.
  • The water from the Flint River  has chloride in it and the chloride in it made the water very corrosive. Because it is corrosive, the led that is in the pipes comes off into the water.
  • The lead affected everyone who drank it, especially the kids. The lead can stunt their growth, and affect their developing brain. They can experience things like memory loss.
  • I don't feel good!
