About Flint Water Festival
Initially, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ordered the city of Flint to replace 18,000 lead and galvanized (i.e., underground) service lines. Six years later, research suggests that approximately 90 percent of the project is complete and less than 1,000 service lines remain to be reviewed. The festival raises funds to replace the pipes inside the 18,000 homes. The average cost to fix pipes for housing is approximately $ 5,000. Everyday people can become a part of the solution by sponsoring the home plumbing replacement program to help low-income homeowners.
