I just read a three Wikipedia articles about the water:
- Drinking water. (2016, March 7). In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. Retrieved 20:18, March 8, 2016, from https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Drinking_water&oldid=708807604 https://via.hypothes.is/https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drinking_water
- Water. (2016, February 17). Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. Retrieved 20:19, March 8, 2016 from https://simple.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Water&oldid=5329726. https://via.hypothes.is/https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water
- Flint water crisis. (2016, March 7). Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. Retrieved 20:18, March 8, 2016 from https://simple.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Flint_water_crisis&oldid=.... https://via.hypothes.is/https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flint_water_cr...
I strongly think that this is very important. A lot of people in Flint are getting sick including children.
One sentence from these articles that stands out for me is:
one sentence from this article from this article that stands out for me is if this was in 2014, why wasn’t it told the resident’s then? people say that the water wasn’t bothering since 2 years ago.Now, in 2016 it comes up.Flint built its first water treatment plant (now defunct) in 1917. The city built a second plant in 1952. As with many other municipalities at the time, all of the service lines from the cast iron water mains to end users homes were constructed of lead, because it is relatively inexpensive, and easy to work. Lead pipes can leach lead into the water.
I’m pretty sure this is accurate because,there’s people who have problems that they cannot get rid of. such as, for children,
Loss of appetite
Sluggishness and fatigue
Another sentence that i agree with is, people say it’s the goverment fault because they have poisoned the water.I was watching this. http://www.democracynow.org/2016/2/17/thirsty_for_democracy_the_poisonin...
People are still paying for dirty water in flint.They think it isn’t fair.
i double checked and read an article this fact also.
There’s something in this article that i think it might be true, people started saying that the flint water was safe afterwards.But, people did not think it was true.
what i learned was that the flint water crisis is very awful for people who are living there. i think soon or later it will be solved soon or later.
