Flint pastors want the city’s water fixed

A group of Flint pastors on Thursday called on the city and governor’s office to let Flint get its tap water again from Detroit.

Nearly a year ago…Flint stopped getting water from Detroit and instead turned to the Flint River for its tap water.

Since then there have been complaints about the appearance, taste, and even health and safety of Flint’s tap water.

Pastor Alfred Harris says the solution is simple.

“Let’s go back to the Detroit water source and work out the details.”

But Flint’s emergency manager insists going back to the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department is not a financially viable option.

Flint plans millions of dollars in upgrades this summer…including a new filtration system and miles of new pipe.

But critics fear problems will continue.
