The city of Flint may have equipment in place by the end of the week to improve chlorine levels in city water.
But it may not be operating.
The Environmental Protection Agency sent the city of Flint a letter last week saying there is an “urgent need” to have the ability to boost chlorine levels in the city’s water supply. They set a date of Friday June 10th to have equipment “installed and operational.”
Chlorine and other chemicals are added to water supplies to kill bacteria, like Legionella. Warm summer weather helps bacteria to grow.
