5,300 U.S. water systems are in violation of lead rules
An international engineering firm will oversee Flint's massive lead pipe replacement efforts in the new year.
To the tune of a $5 million contract with the city, Los Angeles-based AECOM will supervise the Flint Action and Sustainability Team (FAST) Start program, which was previously managed by General Michael McDaniel and members of the Michigan National Guard.
Flint City Council unanimously approved the 13-month contract for $5,054,671 - set to begin Friday, Dec. 1 - earlier this week.
Dangerous Lead levels found in Chicago Public Schools
With the passage of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 (HHFKA), federal law now requires schools to make fresh drinking water available during mealtimes in school food service areas at no cost to students.
According to Substance News (June 13, 2016) "A group of Chicago aldermen has called for a public hearing to learn more about what’s being done to prevent Chicago Public Schools students from drinking water that might have been contaminated with lead."
"CPS officials have said 14 schools have been found to have elevated levels of lead, out of 65 schools that have received test results so far. The district has said it will test the water at every school for lead, starting with the oldest buildings."
“Lead shouldn’t be in our vocabulary in this day and age. We know how to get rid of it, we know how to test for it, and we know how to keep our kids safe from it,” said Ald. Chris Taliaferro (29th)."
(CNN)Eighteen million Americans live in communities where the water systems are in violation of the law. Moreover, the federal agency in charge of making sure those systems are safe not only knows the issues exist, but it's done very little to stop them, according to a new report and information provided to CNN by multiple sources and water experts.
