Anne and I have spent a great deal of time thinking about Flint and how everyday life has changed for the people there. After all, it’s one thing to have to drink bottled water after the Snyder administration poisoned the water coming from your tap. But it’s entirely another thing to have to use bottled water for everything else except flushing your toilet or washing your car. So many of the routine, everyday activities we do around the house have changed for people in Flint:
- Using bottled water to wash dishes.
- Cooking with bottled water.
- The risk of Legionnaire’s Disease or accidental ingestion of lead-tainted water has many people avoiding showering or bathing with water from their taps.
