It was back in 2014 that emergency managers changed the source of the city’s drinking water to the Flint River.  But because the water wasn’t properly treated, lead-contaminated water began to flow into homes.  Crews are still working to fix the problem as residents have been using bottled and filtered water over the last five years later.  Although water has tested clean, officials say more tests are needed over a longer period of time before the water can be considered safe.  Until then, officials are urging residents to continue to avoid unfiltered tap water.  Residents rallied in front of several locations, including the Flint Water Plant and City Hall, to voice their concerns.
