Water Crisis: Flint, Michigan Declared State Of Emergency

Remember when I talked about how in Buenos Aires you still needed a water filter to be used for tap water? That the water treatment method and the grid itself is of awful quality. Like for most other services, due to years of lack of investment and constantly budget cuts the poor water purification methods leaves you with some horrible tap water. They just throw a lot of bleach into it to kill whatever is in it and that’s basically it. Other contaminants such as heavy metals, etc, those you better have some means of filtering it yourself.
We’ll, as the slow slide into a devaluated version of their former selves continues for most countries around the world, Flint, Michigan is having problems with water of their own and have declared State of emergency.
No simple fix: Infrastructure, health issues loom large in Flint water crisis
Folks, two bullet points:
1) I said it a thousand times and I'll say it again, store as much water as you can!
2) Have a water filter (check our Sponsor The Berkey Guy)

The slide into a banana republic, understood both politically and economically and socially, does not happen with a bang, but with a whimper; not with a sudden collapse, but with a gradual slip; not with upheaval, but with eroding quality of life.

Prepare accordingly.
