Flint Mayor Karen Weaver Announces Plan To Eliminate Lead Pipes

On Tuesday, Flint’s Mayor Karen Weaver presented a $55 million effort to resolve  the city’s ongoing water crisis.  

“We are going to restore safe drinking water one house at a time, one child at a time until the lead pipes are gone. We are ready to roll up our sleeves and get the lead out of Flint,” said Mayor Weaver. 

Weaver’s proposal hopes to effectively solve the city’s water problems by replacing all lead pipes with copper ones within one year. The plan is set to take effect within the next month, and should replace approximately 15,000 contaminated service lines. 

Though a federal investigation has been opened, Weaver is worried less about who’s to blame and more about solving the issue.
