Flint fix slows to a trickle


It's been more than 250 days since Gov. Rick Snyder admitted Flint was lead poisoned through its water pipes, after his appointed emergency managers switched the water source to the contaminated Flint River in order to save some money.

So far, a couple dozen pipes have been replaced. Now Flint doesn't know where it's long term water source will come from, or its permanent back up water source.

Whatever  it turns out to be, it's going to cost us at least another $35 to $70 million and according to the state, it could be two-and-a-half years away.

While politicians point fingers, Charlie LeDuff and the Americans head back to Flint for answers.
