The water crisis occurred because the state failed to ensure proper water treatment to prevent the water from excessively corroding the service lines. Reese says that she wanted each design to tell a story about the strength of Flint residents. Levels of 4 ppb were recorded during the first three months of 2018. "Additionally, the medical community has continuously raised questioned as to how special populations, including nursing and bottle-feeding mothers, will receive bottled water while massive pipe replacement is ongoing", Pugh said.

"I will be contacting the Governor's office immediately to express the insensitivity of the decision he made today and to make sure that I remind him of the additional needs that I've requested for the residents of Flint", Flint Mayor Karen Weaver said.

Flint switched its public water source from Lake Huron to the Flint River in a cost-cutting move in April 2014. "This is a personal choice because again, the water is in compliance with the federal standard".

Army National Guard Specialist David Brown loads bottled water into waiting cars at a fire station on January 21, 2016 in Flint, Michigan. Reese teamed up with artist Mel Chin for the creation of Flint Fit; a collection of clothes created from the remnants of water bottles used by residents who were affected by the water crisis in Flint, Teen Vogue reported.

Snyder's statement says 94 percent of water samples taken between July 1 and December 31, 2017, tested below the federal guideline of 15 parts per billion or less of lead and copper. After initially denying the problem, Synder's government admitted its mistake when research showed higher blood levels in Flint children. They are disgusting for the environment, and in order to recycle the plastic waste, designer Tracy Reese partnered with conceptual artist Mel Chin to implement Flint Fit, a capsule collection created from fabrics made from Flint's empty water bottle byproducts, according to Teen Vogue. In total, MI taxpayers have footed more than $350 million to the city, and the federal government has funded $100 million.

More than 6,200 homes have had their pipes replaced so far, according to Snyder's announcement.

In Flint, trust is in short supply.

Democratic Rep. Sheldon Neeley said the city has his full backing should it decide to sue the state to demand free bottled water.

State Sen. Jim Ananich, a Democrat from Flint, was aghast at Snyder's decision.

Marc Edwards, a Virginia Tech researcher who was one of the earliest experts to call attention to Flint's contamination, said his independent testing shows the health crisis ended in the fall. "That's just their reality they're going to have to live with and deal with for the rest of their lives".
