President Obama’s EPA knew about the contaminated water in Flint, Michigan for 7 months and didn’t warn the public.
Now, Donald Trump’s EPA is doing what it can to make sure a disaster like that never happens again.
From The Daily Caller:
The Environmental Protection Agency awarded Michigan $100 million to help replace Flint’s badly eroded and damaged water infrastructure.
The funding was provided by the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation Act of 2016 and enables the beleaguered city to replace its decaying lead water pipes. Michigan is providing the required 20 percent match of $20 million.
The fix is part of the Trump administration’s goal of updating the country’s water infrastructure, EPA administrator Scott Pruitt said Friday in a press statement.
Nice to see that this administration is focused on fixing the problem rather than pointing fingers.
