    Man, could you imagine if groups like these were to get their shit together and actually do good in the world-- like demanding the impeachment and arrest of Michigan Gov. Snyder, seizure of money gained from allowing poisoned water, and the restoration of a clean drinking supply to a city of hundreds of thousands of people.

    It isn't an overreaction to someone who, when presented with evidence that his tax-cut driven project was "the fall of Rome"-level poisoning an entire populace, not only IGNORED it, but ACTIVELY FOUGHT AGAINST any further investigation or restoration of the water supply.

    But hey, this is coming from a country whose attitude is "Children getting murdered by guns, that's okay. We can live with some dead kids". So I'm not surprised there exists a "Meh, we can deal with our corrupt government poisoning an entire town, and causing permanent brain damage and/or death to an entire generation of children".

    But why castigate Obama's EPA like that? Racist.

    I'll admit to not having followed it all that closely, but as I understand it, it was the state level EPA sort of agency that handled a lot of that. Did it ever get up to the level of the governor?

    Snyder actively fought to keep the EPA out. He basically said it's a state-level issue, and the feds have no business being there. (Because then he'd be found out and busted). Rather than going "Shit, guys things are fucked up come in quick and help".

    Same problem with now, after the fact, declaring a state of emergency. It means the feds come in, and spend federal money doing triage. Fed money will need to be spent at some point BUT the state has about $1.2 BILLION dollars sitting in the kitty-- mainly gained from doing shit like cutting services.

    So what should happen is the corrupt Snyder needs to be taken out, the $1.2 Billion used to restore Flint's water supply, and at the same time bring in EPA, Army Corps of Engineers, FEMA, etc to assist.

    (R) or (D), don't give a fuck. Anyone who is guilty needs to be dealt with. But most importantly the government has to stop feeding poisoned water to it's citizens, and start putting in supports to the thousands of children who now have permanent brain damage.

    I've seen estimates of ~2 years, but at about a billion dollars. I've seen several arguments against going private sector on this, since that's one of the reason the problem exists in the first place. They don't want a project that's going to go over time and over budget and not be completed. Better to have the feds seize the money and bring in their own people (ie: Corp of Engineers). Whatever cash is left over can go back into Michigan's "rainy day fund"-- though I'd say a massive poisoned water system is about a rainy day as you'd want to crack open that fund.

  • @FrostCat said:

    filthy river water

    All of the media reports made it sound like they started producing contaminated water, but in fact there was nothing inherently wrong with the water. Lots of water systems use river water without problems. Their problem was that their water infrastructure was chock-full of old lead pipes, and when they changed their water source, the clean water they produced was slightly more corrosive than it had been. While there are measures that can be taken to reduce the corrosivity of water, they had no reason to take such measures until the problem was discovered. According to any samples that were taken directly at the water treatment facility, their water was basically fine.

    Since testing the purified water that they were producing at their water treatment facility would not have identified the problem, in order to detect lead, they'd have to sample the water directly from the taps of their customers. This is required, per the EPA:

    epa.gov - Lead and Copper Rule:

    The [Lead and Copper] rule requires systems to monitor drinking water at customer taps. If lead concentrations exceed an action level of 15 ppb or copper concentrations exceed an action level of 1.3 ppm in more than 10% of customer taps sampled, the system must undertake a number of additional actions to control corrosion.

    By default, water systems are required to monitor drinking water at a minimum number of customer taps every 6 months; however, small systems who have consistently met the lead and copper requirements can qualify for reduced-frequency monitoring - annual, triennial, or even once every 9 years*. Thus, a problem could exist for quite a long time - months or even years - before being detected.

    @Lorne_Kates said:

    someone who, when presented with evidence that his tax-cut driven project was "the fall of Rome"-level poisoning an entire populace, not only IGNORED it, but ACTIVELY FOUGHT AGAINST any further investigation or restoration of the water supply.

    If true, that was definitely the wrong action, and I'm quite sure that heads will roll for this. The EPA doesn't play games when it comes to the public safety.

    @boomzilla said:

    I have heard that the EPA did find out nearly a year ago and then actively prevented telling anyone about it.

    That would be shocking. The EPA regulations require the system to publish a Lead Consumer Notice within 30 days of learning the results of any lead testing, regardless of whether the results exceeded the lead threshold or not. Exceedance "is not a violation but can trigger other requirements that include water quality parameter (WQP) monitoring, corrosion control treatment (CCT), source water monitoring/treatment, public education, and lead service line replacement (LSLR)"*.

    @FrostCat said:

    Okay, let's look at them. They're a city of people being poisoned. You think, what, a bunch of gangbangers went around, got a billion dollar contract to change the source of water for the city, let lay ruin ancient and rusting pipe systems, and covered it up for two years? Like, I know you're usually fucking stupid as a rock but I'm truly puzzled by what the fuck you're getting at here?

    Do you mean the city managers, who rejected the Flint River as a water source in 2012, and were overridden by the Governor?

    Or did you mean the mayor of Flint-- who long ago had all her powers stripped away by Ambrose, the "emergency manager" installed by Synder after firing the last scapegoat. Wait, I guess she can't since the Governor took away her powers.

    Or did you mean the RESIDENTS of Flint-- like the ones who were complaining about the color, taste and smell within days of the switch-over-- but who were told it's not a problem. That the water is fine. That they must just have rusty pipes. That they should ignore it. That they should install a filter. That the EPA doesn't need to come in to test waters that are filled with 2x the amount of lead that would classify it as TOXIC WASTE? Should the residents have rioted (those troublemakers)? Should they have ripped out the pipes and installed new ones-- with the $1.2 billion and no plumbing expertise they have? Should all 100,000 of them have gotten up, left town, and squatted in a rich neighborhood still on the Lake Huron supply?

    Seriously, you fucking idiot, what do you mean by "the city of Flint"?

    If Snyder knew about this for 2 years, he should face the death penalty. If he didn't, then he's the world's most incompetent leader and should face life in prison for gross negligence causing harm and death. You don't get to be the governor of a state and claim ignorance.

    No, it's a disingenuous ad hominem. I doubt there's anyone here who thinks lead in the water isn't a bad thing. But when you don't have the facts, you pound the table.



  • @boomzilla said:

    From stuff I've read, they could simply have put anti-corrosion / leaching treatment in the water. Maybe that ship has sailed, though.

    No, most likely that is basically still true. Simultaneously also implementing a program to gradually phase out all of the lead pipe in the water system, as quickly as reasonably possible, would be very advisable, however.

    Corrosion is a complex problem, though: it is wear on the pipes (chemical, physical, or electrochemical) which can be caused by a variety of things, including acidic (low pH) water, high levels of dissolved oxygen, high levels of dissolved salts, the actions of certain microorganisms, abrasive nature of sand/sediment in the water, galvanic effects of improper grounding or stray electrical currents, or even just too high velocity of the water relative to the pipe's size. So it's pretty hard to just take a sample of water, run some quick tests, and get a definitive Yes or No on whether it'll corrode pipes in your system. That's why actual physical sampling at the point-of-use is required to detect these problems.

    Basically, the standard approach for corrosive water in an entire water system is some combination of:

    • increasing the water's pH by
      • passing it through an acid-neutralizing filter
      • adding alkaline chemicals to increase the water's pH and alkalinity
    • adding a phosphate, an inorganic salt of phosphoric acid, which deposits a protective film of scale on pipes, insulating the bare metal from any corrosive action of the water
    • gradually phasing out lead and copper pipes and replacing them with NSF-approved PVC

    (Steps can also be taken at individual customers' service entries or at the point of use, to reduce corrosivity, filter out heavy metals, or simply flush water that has been stagnant long enough to corrode a significant amount of heavy metal from the customer's service line; however, such steps are generally impractical for a system-wide problem.)

    Extreme caution has to be taken before any change of source or treatment method; disruption of the water's chemistry can cause it to be more corrosive, and/or to begin removing the scale that has built up inside pipes, exposing the bare metal again.

    Water which is suddenly coming from the tap with an unusual taste, odor, or color can be a very good indicator that a change has occurred and that there might be a problem somewhere; however, all by itself, it is not necessarily a major problem. If the water has been disinfected properly, it may still be safe to drink, although it's unpalatable. That is one likely reason why officials might have shrugged off the situation. However, the fact that tests indicated the increased presence of lead should have been a cause for a lot more concern than was shown.

    At the time of the switch, Darnell Earley was Flint’s state-appointed emergency manager, with near total control of day-to-day operations. He was the third appointee to oversee the financially unstable city since 2011. According to a letter obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan, it was Earley who made the final call.

    I fucking DARE you to go to Flint and start telling parents that they should quit their SJW whining about their kids being poisoned, brain damaged and given shortened lifespans because their leaders put lead in the water. I fucking dare you, you stupid motherfucker.

    Fuck off with this shit.

    Have you figured out who made the decision yet? Under what information? No? Fuck off with your ignorance. Attitudes like that are just going to set up something like that to happen again in the future.

    REAL ACTUAL LEAD-POISONING RELATED BRAIN DAMAGE TO THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN BECAUSE OF DECISIONS AND POLICIES PUT INTO PLACE BY GOV. SNYDER AND HIS GOVERNMENT

    And you just want to throw the guy out who's at the top and don't care about what actually happened. "What difference at this point does it make?"



  • @Fox said:

    The fact that you appear to be taking the position that the governor of Michigan should be allowed to keep his position.

    Well, for now, he certainly should. Has he been recalled? Has he done something criminal?

    Funny that a Canadian knows better than an American how government accountability works in the US.

    Which one?

    Because you're writing complete and total bullshit. There is no onus to entertain lines of complete and total bullshit. You still think 1000 Syrian refuges raped a bunch of German women.

    Go fuck yourself.

    No.

    Yes. At the very least, several counts of negligent homicide.

    I already did that a couple times just yesterday, but I'll be happy to oblige you when I get home.

    Got a link for that accusation? Or is this just another one of those "obvious" things we're supposed to take on faith?
