As far back at 2015 ThumbWind started ringing the warning bell as Michigan Governor Rick Snyder’s Financial Manager Darnell Earley authorizes the utilization of the Flint River as a point water source for the city. Needless-to-say the rest is history. The Flint Water Crisis resulted in 1000’s of people becoming poisoned with lead and $100’s of millions spend to remediate the debacle. I was recently approached by some folks in Ireland from the Water Filter Men who provided this awesome infographic to update us on this modern crisis.
Infographic provided by The Water Filter Men (https://www.thewaterfiltermen.ie/) is an online stockist of water filtration products based in the town of Dundalk in Ireland. It is known as a well-respected stockist of products such as reverse osmosis water filter systems, UV sterilizer systems, and water softeners, while the company is committed to promoting the provision of clean water for all homes and businesses. Its owners are renowned for their encyclopedic knowledge of water treatment and ethical standpoint on environmentally friendly filtration practices.
As of 2019, the Flint Water Crisis is still a topic in the news.
