Been A Long Time Coming: Flint Residents Can Sue Federal Government Over Water Crisis [PHOTO]

A judge has ruled that Flint, Michigan residents can sue the federal government over the water crisis.

The crisis began on April 25, 2014 where their drinking water system was contaminated with lead.

5 years later, they finally received the $77.7 million needed to improve the water system.

For years residents palaced blame on the EPA for not warning them of the issue. A judge didn’t rule if they will hold the EPA responsible, but it’s a great first start that residents can sue the government.
