On Wednesday, prosecutors will announce the first criminal charges related tothe contaminated drinking water and subsequent outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease that killed 12 people in Flint, Michigan, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Just how many lead pipes are there in Flint, Michigan, where the water has been undrinkable because of high lead levels? Nobody knows.
