Many of you may have heard the crisis that arose in the water distribution system in Flint, Michigan. It took the entire water industry by shock and the lessons learnt from that one calamity (if I may call it that) will educate an entire generation of water resource engineers. The pediatrician that raised the issue of lead concentrations in the water system talks about her challenges in raising awareness of what seems like a common sense issue. Fascinating read. You can also hear her on NPR.
Although I want you to read everything I post here, if you are prioritizing, this is a must read. A question to ask: have you checked for any potential lead contamination issues in your water source lately?
