Why do you keep trying to throw this on republicans? It's a problem, period! Why does everyone want to point fingers: he did it!


Let's work on fixing it as people!!!

Republicans won't pass immigration or infrastructure bill for years when they could have. It won't happen now because we are going to war for Putin. And the rest of our taxes will go to Goldman Sachs with the tax shift they are anticipating under Trump and republican power rule.

Some people apparently just can't help themselves. Partisan version of Debbie.



This absolutely should be one of those issues that crosses the partisan divide.

Seem's to me he said it will become a bigger problem, where did you read "Trumps fault" ?
You are a smart guy..don't play dumb, you know what he meant.

The EPA was created for very good reason..I will say it needs serious reorganisation

It will be reorganized alright. Look at Scott Pruitt's record, Trumps EPA choice....

Oh I know..I worry for the next generation.
This place would be like China without the EPA..hell, a few places like that already ..uninhabitable.
Having said that, like any big govt entity they can get out of hand.

They seem to be ineffective in this situation.

As a side note to the political comments, it's probably worth having your home's water tested. I've done this every place I've lived in for any length of time (well, after the Army period). Generally, it'll be ok and match the city's analysis (they have to provide you with this if you ask). But not always.

Huntsville had really bad water in terms of contamination they weren't owning up to. Madison did as well. Had to put in RO filters both places, and at work.

Both Houses of Bedlam have wells, and there's damn near nothing in the water at all. In fact, I'm going to have to add a neutralizer to the Florida house because there's no carbonates, which makes the water acidic. Plenty of carbonates in the Georgia family house well. Makes for good beer brewing. But neither place has any metal content except silicon and a smidge of iron and copper, but just a trace. No detectable heavy metals, petroleum, or pesticides. No radioactive trace elements.

Seriously, your country sucks on a whole different level.

They'll just keep pulling the strings and you'll just keep on noticing them a little to late.
Is America seriously a first world country?

Meanwhile, it seems Nestle continues to cheaply buy up access to water supplies. Imagine the profits from bottling up all the clean water and selling it to the areas that can't drink the local stuff, or to FEMA to distribute.

They've donated thousands of litres of water to the people of flint.

Facts, they're free.

Get and use ALL the time a reverse osmosis system.

No pump or carbon filter. I use my one for 3 years.
