Flint Michigan water crisis is an ongoing drinking water contamination crisis. Join us in our efforts to get water to the community of Flint, Michigan
Srewolf & Nitram Foundation HEARTS is doing their part to bring water to the devastated community of Flint Michigan. After the change in water source from treated Lake Huron water (via Detroit) to the Flint River, the drinking water had a series of problems that culminated with lead contamination, creating a serious public health danger. The corrosive Flint River water caused lead from aging pipes to leach into the water supply, causing extremely elevated levels of lead. As a result, between 6,000 and 12,000 residents had severely high levels of lead in the blood and experienced a range of serious health problems. The water change is also a possible cause of an outbreak of Legionnaires' disease in the county that has killed 10 people and affected another 77. As of 01/ 24/2016, we have partnered with Hinckley, Jewels, Walmart, Home Depot, Walgreen, our Facebook, and Twitter Friends. The water drop-off was Hyde Park Career Academy High School in Chicago Illinois. The first semi-truck to Flint Michigan delivered water to Flint on January 30, 2016. The last shipment was June, 2017.
