December 18, 2016 by legitgov

Flint Bottled Water Deliveries Must Start, 6th Circuit Rules | 16 Dec 2016 | A mostly unsympathetic three-judge panel of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Friday that bottled water deliveries must begin immediately to Flint residents whose homes don't have filter systems on their kitchen taps, upholding a lower court judge's decision ordering the door-to-door deliveries in response to the city's long-running lead water crisis. The panel's 2-1 decision marks the third time a federal court has ordered the water deliveries, which the state argued were unnecessary and costly. In two previous rulings ordering the door-to-door water deliveries, U.S. District Judge David Lawson said the state was unable to show that filtering systems to remove the lead from the water had been properly installed.
