Comment Re:How about Government poisoning your water? (Score 1) 221

I'm not sure I would say it was insufficient citizen involvement. A lot of people initially thought it would be a sufficient stop gap measure while the other intake and processing plant was being built. It wasn't until people saw the water that was coming out of their taps that they complained, and then officials had the opportunity or need to tamper with evidence and ignore citizens.

Fun fact--While the people were being ignored, the GM complained to the governor here, and a lot of money was spent re-piping to get the GM plant back on water processed by Detroit, while keeping the people on unsafe corrosive water.
