Statement from Flint Mayor Weaver on Order from Federal Judge Regarding Water Deliveries:
“I have always been a proponent for clean safe drinking water, the people of Flint deserve nothing less. We appreciate the judge’s order and agree that clean water should be easily accessible to everyone in the City of Flint and more needs to be done to make that happen. We will do everything we can to abide by the order including reaching out to leaders at the state level for help.
We also know that making sure everyone has access to bottled water is just an immediate and temporary fix. We can’t rely on bottled water forever. The people of Flint should be able to turn on their faucets and get safe clean water without a filter, and that is our ultimate goal.
We continue to make progress with the FAST Start pipe replacement initiative and are working to gain additional resources to be able to replace even more lead-tainted pipes in Flint and eliminate the ongoing effects of this man-made water disaster for good.”
