Tap water in Flint, Michigan, classified as hazardous waste | 04 Oct 2015 | Although Michigan officials have asserted there is no problem with the Flint city water supply, doctors are warning that drinking the city's lead-filled tap water could permanently lower IQ, among other potential problems. Since the city [Gov. Rick Snyder's appointed dictator, emergency manager Ed Kurtz] switched their water source from Detroit to the Flint River, tap water contains double the amount of lead. This is a result of the more corrosive water coming into contact with service lines and city pipes, requiring stricter treatment than the city is providing. Lead levels in Flint’s drinking water are so high they are defined as hazardous waste,  according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
