Flint Water Crisis

Post by Jolly » Thu Feb 11, 2016 10:15 pm

Greetings Troopers.
As many of you know, Flint has been in the news due to our water situation.
Here's the deal.

The powers that be, decided to switch from Detroit's Lake Huron water to the Flint River.
There was talks of us receiving water from Port Huron but there were problems.
Flint River, bad choice. Contaminated water came through the city with E-coli bacteria and every other
toxic thing you could imagine. In essence, some of the Flint residence water was the color
of "apple juice" with floating particles, plus lead from old pipes. I'm not trying to be morbid
here but those who live in my city are familiar with its history of our river being a dumping
site for the most awful crimes, decaying animals, GM's sewage system and a host of other
things I rather not say.

Personally, I've never experienced the discoloration from my pipes, but we were told "not" to
drink the water. In the mean time, celebrities, entertainers, Hillary Clinton, President Obama
and a host of other folks who needed publicity have converged on our city. I'm leaving out the
details because you can read it anywhere online or in TIME magazine. But first I must take this
time to thank Michelle Arnold and Aaron "FOO" Combs for their warm support and encouraging
words at a time when Jolly needed it. And, I also would like to thank my brother and sister troopers
for your prayers. Our precious children need it. Taking a closer look, we now see some of the
damage that has been created in our children from drinking the water. Millions of bottles of
water has been donated to the city.

As of today, I would like to report the findings associated with my water situation. On 1/22/2016,
I sent my water to: Michigan Department of Environmental Quality Drinking Water Laboratory in Lansing.
Here are their findings.

Metal -------------- Result in Parts Per Billion (ppb)
Cooper Not Detected
Lead Not Detected

Anything under 15 ppb is considered acceptable. The highest in Flint was 13,295 ppb.
Yes, I am blessed. No detection.

With Respect,

Jolly

Yes sir, Ripcode. It is.
After all the armor party's I've had here at the house, it's nice to know my water is safe.

Great news. I also have other costumer friends that live in Flint which had their water tested fine as well.
