instigator but I am from Michigan and I had worked for the Detroit Free Press I was born and raised in Michigan and I have often covered issues having to do with you young adults and and I've done a lot of investigative work on government from doing so when mark came to me with this story I was extremely interested I knew that it was right up it kind of brought together a lot of nice different skills and interests okay not really yeah yeah I I felt that this was a story that had to be told because on the one hand it is the deepest part of what I have how we missed treat each other in this country and also the most inspiring example of people fighting for and speaking up for themselves and I felt like those two factors the downside and the upside are not just about the point in two thousand fourteen but as we see so clearly about us now where are we now in flinch if we were to go to sleep right now we are on we well there are still lead service lines in the ground that they have yet to be excavated unfortunately the pandemic was put that work on hold so you still have lead pipes in the ground and that's really unfortunate and I think it's hard for plan residents should feel trusting of their water as long as al sure they are the attorney general's office in Michigan you know the the administration change there so the new administration under governor with mark throughout the old criminal charges and started and noon last summer and so it's been six years since the water was switch and the we're still waiting to find out whether the AG's office is going to file any

severely and it lodges in their bones in their brains and all organs of their systems and now their school age and they're having trouble the school system is saying a lot of kids with developmental delays and they're overwhelmed by that so you can see already this trail this legacy of the of the water crisis I'm conscionable as what it is I'm conscionable yes it is completely and it makes you

discovered the same problems right I mean anywhere you have this aging infrastructure problem which is true in flint and all these other rust belt towns that use lead pipes to create their you know their their water systems you know these are now very fragile systems and if you don't know what you're doing you can easily you know if you if you mess with the chemistry of the water too much you will begin to corrode the pipe and then that's when all of these heavy metals bacteria are released into people's water so the people who are the chemist the engineers and no no water really need to
