Flint Michigan has been in crisis mode for around 4 years now and felt almost forgotten about when it comes to the government. Back in 2014 it was discovered their water had an unsafe amount of lead in it due to old lead pipes. This caused the schools to close down their water fountains and it's been chaos ever since! Elon Musk has announced with partnership with Flint Schools to bring clean drinking water back from the kids.

The Flint Schools Superintendent told ABC 12 “The new water filtration systems will be instrumental in helping our students return to the normalcy of what should be a fundamental right: having access to safe, clean water from water fountains in their school.” It's a shame that they had to go this long without the government helping fix the problem but it's such a blessing for them that someone like Elon Musk whose planning a mission to mars is there to save the day.
