  1. Alternate headline: literal kids forced to pick up the slack in their community because even after several years corporations and the government refuse to effectively fix the mess they created in the first place

  2. I was living in a hotel in Clearwater FL when this news story broke. I got nervous and got the tap water tested and discovered that the lead level in the drinking water was 242 ppb. The EPA has stated that the maximum safe level for drinking water is 15 ppb. That's more than 16 times the maximum safe level. I pointed this out to the hotel owner who told me I was full of crap. So I moved and complained to the city. That was 6 years ago and not one thing has been done. Where I am now the tap water tests 136 ppb. That is more than 8 times the maximum safe level. So I don't drink the water and I don't use it for cooking or brushing teeth or washing dishes. I collect rainwater and boil it and clean my dishes in that. I use bottled water for brushing teeth. Here is a quick test to tell you if you have high levels. It is not perfectly accurate but if the test comes back positive you need to get your water professionally tested. Take a white glazed ceramic dinner plate. Place it under your faucet at a 45 degree angle so the water runs all the way across the plate. run just cold water and keep it running for 8 hours. Yes you will use a lot of water this way but you will also find out if you have lead in your water. After 8 hours look at the plate. If it has dark grey/silver or black streaks that is most likely lead that has accumulated. Lead will stick to glazed ceramic and white makes it easier to see. Most family dollar or dollar tree stores carry white ceramic plates.

  3. Joe had 8 yrs to fix this . Now he has 8 more. Bring Back Detroit Make water plants to filter out this stuff. We can make ships that filter the oceans out like they have in Japan …..Why aren't we doing this now 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡

  4. Question: You're able in real time to to monitor the status of the water there?

    Answer: Correct, within the next day we're able to um determine the parts per million in the water.

    Conclusion: Neither of them knows what "real time" means and Lester Holt does not know how to ask a follow-up question when someone blatantly lies to him.
