Why are people in Flint, Michigan still paying for water we can’t even use? If you think about it we use water more often than we think. We use water in our everyday life. We use water to shower, drinking, washing dishes, cooking, brushing our teeth and so much more. The average person in the United States uses 80-100 gallons of water a day. If the average person uses 80-100 gallons of water a day it would be very hard trying not to use it.
Not only do we not have clean water, the water is affecting people’s skin and hair. I’ve heard stories about people getting rashes just from this water. People shouldn’t have rashes on their skin nor they shouldn’t be breaking out from this water that there are still paying for that’s not fair.
All this money have been donated to Flint and we still don’t have safe drinkable water. I feel like if the city of Flint used all the money that was donated to us to fix the pipes that would’ve made a huge difference. We got water donated to us by famous people that still didn’t fix the problem. We appreciate they help but it’s only so much one person can do. Donating money for us to get bottled water as a start. When the water got donated to us people could get free water. Today the water is limited. It’s not much water depots left. Everybody know that flint is going through a crisis and they gone limit our supply of water ? That’s not right. Even when you go to local grocery stores bottled water still not cheap. I feel like bottled water should be cheaper.
This is all the government fault. He was the only who thought it was okay to switch the water to the Flint River to save money. But living cheap is not always the best way to live. Then when the government first switched the water he keep on the low don’t nobody know about it . But why would you switch to the water to the Flint River knowing that the water is not safe. For many years I have been told that you can’t even eat fish or anything out that river so why would we want to drink water from that river?
I feel like the president should provide support for the issue that’s going on in Flint. It might be way more important things that’s going on in the world today but this is a problem that need to get fixed can as soon as possible. If the president ignore this issue that’s going on in Flint then it’s not going to do nothing but make things worse. We already have a lot of negative things that’s going on in Flint but by diving the water it would be a positive. This water crisis have been going on for 3 years when is Flint ever going to get safe drinkable water ?Tags: #flintwater #Trump 2nextprez Climate Change health
