The corroded lead pipes in Flint, Mich., could be fixed in May, putting drinkable water in sight for the city’s residents. In a Friday letter, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) said environmental regulators in Michigan and for the federal government estimate that additives in Flint’s water will finish rescaling pipes by May 1, which would stop the corrosion. FEMA did not say when it thinks regulators could certify that Flint’s water is safe to drink, though it predicted that could take three months. Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) said Friday he would not base the water approval on any calendar date. The sad thing is the democrats who run the city of Flint, MI will never be willing to put up any money to fix the pipes, and you don't even have to replace them. All you have to do to simply fix the pipes, is to put a chemical that destroys lead, by only simply spending a few thousand dollars, without the millions of dollars needed to spend on new pipes and construction equipment and workers. Just find a non toxic chemical that breaks lead down until it's destroyed. The politicians of Flint, MI will never do such a logical cheap way of fixing this, because the officials in Flint who allowed this problem to continue for two plus years. Are simply using this tragedy to simply turn the problem into a political event, when thousands of citizens and their health are at stake.
