Enviro News: Flint Water Crisis
Posted by on
No community should have to forego water. There is not a particularly severe drought in Michigan, as the map from the US Drought Monitor Service demonstrates. However, there is an water shortage in Flint, MI due to contamination. The water situation in Michigan is a reminder that water is a vital resource and that access to water can be endangered by a variety of natural and man-made factors.
