Flint Water Quality Raising Concerns Among Community

Posted: Updated:

In a downstate community concerns are growing about the local water quality.

In flint, a recent report shows that the number of kids with elevated levels of lead in their blood is getting higher.

The city stopped getting its water from Detroit last year and started taking it from the Flint River.

It's getting so bad that people in the area are buying bottled water because they can't risk drinking from the tap.

Some are spending about 15 dollars a week buying bottled water.

Local markets are having water delivered up to three times a week just to keep up with demand.
