Erin Brockovich Working with Lawyers to Get Justice for Families in Flint, Michigan

The crisis with the water in Flint can’t wait any longer.  Lawsuits have already been filed, and more plaintiffs are joining daily.   Environmental activist Erin Brockovich has joined with a group of law firms who have experience in fighting for the rights of people harmed by polluted and dangerous water.       The original supplier of drinking water to the people of Flint was the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department. Then, in 2014, the  Governor’s Emergency Manager switched the municipal water supplier,  and residents’ drinking water source became the Flint River.   At that time, pipes began leaching lead into the water supply.  Michigan official failed to add necessary chemicals to prevent the pipes from eroding.  The water ate away at the pipes, allowing the highly corrosive water to flow into homes and drinking sources.   Although the source of the water has now been changed back to Lake Huron, the damage is already done.  Lead is still poisoning the water due to the corroded pipes.   These pipes need to be replaced.

Lead From Pipes Poisoning Children

This case is not only about the ongoing issue of getting clean water for people to drink. It’s also about the damage already done – especially to the children. Lead poisoning is known to cause brain damage and neurological problems in young children. These are injuries they will never be able to completely overcome. That’s why there are strict governmental requirements regarding their access to lead – in paint, in products and now, apparently, in the water they drink.
