More than 1,000 days after Flint, Mich.’s water crisis started, relief in the form of a $100 million grant is on the way to help the city fix its water system. That relief comes just as the city announces plans to begin shutting off water service for some who have been unable to pay their bills.
The state of Michigan filed a motion Thursday seeking to be relieved of the “unnecessary” and “insurmountable burden” of delivering cases of bottled water to Flint, Mich., residents affected by the lead-contaminated water crisis.
