Sept 13th, 2018: Flint Water

Flint MI Fire Department bought their newest truck 18 months ago, just after the city started drawing water from the Flint River.
Routine maintenance discovered this 18 month old, $462,000 pump, was being eaten by the water.
Another older truck cost $65,000 to repair the damage.
The pumps are tested every day to make sure they have trucks in service that will do the job.



Quote:
Cox says he's informed Mayor Karen Weaver of what's happening. In the meantime, the goal is to prevent the problem from getting worse in the other trucks. The department is hoping the weekly flushing of the pumps and avoiding hydrants with dirty water will help.
Wait, avoiding hydrants with dirty water? Some do and some don't? Why not flush them?
Quote:
The department is also trying to address concerns that the water could be corroding fire suppression systems around the city. Cox says a fire lieutenant is calling sprinkler installation companies to see if they've inspected systems installed in homes and businesses. Fire Department inspections in the spring should help to shed some light.
Do these home and business suppression systems use different supply pipes than domestic water?

I'm so sick of this being what Flint means now.

What about MY feelings?

It's okay, you'll forget about your hurt feelings soon enough.
