Flint Water Leads Legacy

FILE – Water from the Flint River flows through the Hamilton Dam near downtown Flint, Mich., on Jan. 21, 2016. As a part of efforts to get the city’s finances in line, its water source was changed in April 2014, from a supply treated in Detroit and piped to Flint, to Flint River water treated and disseminated locally. It wasn’t long before residents began complaining of yellow and brown water from their taps, along with an unpleasant taste and smell. People began seeing rashes on their skin and clumps of hair falling from their heads. Workers at a remaining GM plant found their parts were corroding. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya, File)
