Finally, A Settlement In Flint – by Erin Brockovich and Suzanne Boothby – The Brockovich Report

On Wednesday a judge approved a $626 million deal to settle lawsuits filed by the people of Flint, making money available to those most vulnerable—the children who were exposed to unsafe, toxic levels of lead in their drinking water. Adults with injuries, business owners, and anyone who paid water bills at that time will also have access to money from the settlement.

An estimated 10,000 kids were exposed to drinking water with unsafe levels of lead in Flint, a town of about 100,000 people.

It’s now November 2021 and this crisis began in April 2014. That’s 7 years! That’s way too long for any family to deal with health issues and water problems, and all the fear that goes with them.
