Michigan City Using Bottled Water As Benton Harbor Faces Lead Contamination Crisis

Seven years after the Flint water crisis, residents of another Michigan city are being given bottled water due to high levels of lead contaminating its tap water. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is advising Benton Harbor residents not to use tap water for cooking or drinking due to reported lead levels of more than 59 times the state’s legal limit. Lead contamination was first reported in the majority-Black and low-income city three years ago, and environmental groups are accusing the state government of not adequately responding to the issue.
