#Flintwatercrisis timeline and the question of new waterworks


"Apr 14 In an effort to save money,(emergency mgr?) Flint water dept. doesn’t add chemicals ($140/day – phosphates)-city water and DEQ don’t realize this will destroy protection to keep lead pipes safe (why?)"
Apparently, not adding anti-corrosives to the water doomed the money saving project.
Now what?
"An aggressive plan to remove Flint's lead-contaminated pipes from the water distribution system was announced Tuesday (Feb. 2, 2016) by city officials..." Even though water from the Flint River no longer flows through the city water works, the damage is apparently done. Etched are the Flint pipes, leaching lead into the current water source from Detroit. Damaged pipes leaching lead is said to be the reason why the people of Flint still need water donations.

I will put links to blog posts here from time to time and I would like you to read and comment. Please watch, subscribe to the videos too. Thank you!
Oh Yeah, I started a new blog!
I began DIY Life Hack Mamma because that is what I do most of the time: figure stuff out.
 If you've ever heard of the phrase champagne taste on a beer budget, you've found me. I make soap from scratch because regular soap does not agree with my skin, I recreate restaurant meals at home, create appliances I cannot install or afford (yet,) and in general, I figure out a way from no way. I pray a lot too. Join me on my journey. It will be fun. 
Everything you see me do is for entertainment purposes only. All of my experiments are for my purposes only. It's fun to watch.
