Flint was caused by misfeasance by public officials switching water supplies and failing to add treatment chemicals to the Flint River water L.A. has 6,800 miles of water supply piping, reported television station KABC, and 2,000 miles of that is more than 80 years old The American Society of Civil Engineers has given our infrastructure a grade of D+ There’s never been any appetite to spend money on infrastructure
