The pipes in Glen Canyon Dam that release water from Lake Powell to feed Lake Mead are too damaged to function, officials said. There will be no spring release, threatening water supply to Lake mead, a reservoir that supplies drinking and agricultural water to more than 30 million people in California, Nevada, Utah, and parts of Mexico.

How Michigan’s Bureaucrats Created the Flint Water Crisis - Fortune Jan 20, 2016

Spoiler Alert! Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

“I am not one of those weak-spirited, sappy Americans who want to be liked by all the people around them. I don’t care if people hate my guts; I assume most of them do. The important question is whether they are in a position to do anything about it. My affections, being concentrated over a few people, are not spread all over Hell in a vile attempt to placate sulky, worthless shits.” - William S Burroughs

What is Michigan state’s Flint water crisis?

After officials failed to strike a short-term agreement with DWSD, Flint officials decided to use water from the Flint river and treat it at the Flint Water Service Center (FWSC). But the water wasn’t treated properly at the FWSC, resulting in lead contamination.

The article also notes that while the Flint river water is difficult to treat, “oversights and missteps” combined with “inherent chemical conditions” set the stage for the water crisis.

A report published in 2017 by the Michigan Civil Rights Commission said that race and racism played a role in causing the water crisis even though both black and white residents were victims. The report is based on the testimony of over 150 residents, community leaders, experts, academics and government officials

We are not suggesting that those making decisions related to this crisis were racists, or meant to treat Flint any differently because it is a community primarily made up by people of color. Rather, the disparate response is the result of systemic racism that was built into the foundation and growth of Flint, its industry and the suburban area surrounding it,” the report said.

”The crisis has been the subject of a film and a documentary film. A 2017 TV film called Flint directed by Bruce Beresford starring Queen Latifah featured her as a woman dealing with the effects that the contaminated water had on her and her family. A documentary on the subject, also titled “Flint”, was released in 2020 and is based on half a decade of research into the crisis and the failure of officials to respond to it.

Well hell, I didn't realize Queen Latifah was involved. This must be whyte pepo fault! She so smart. And sassy!

I won't call that one horse doo doo. But the earth isn't over populated. We just don't manage things to well.
