Yet another public water supply has been found tainted with toxic lead from corrosive pipes.
It is no surprise to watch crumbling rust belt cities under siege by corrosive, tainted and dangerous lead pipes, though it is tragic.
Cincinnati, like Flint, has a major lead issue in its public water supply. Cassius Kamarampiwrites:
Cincinnati city officials sent out letters to 16,000 residents this week, informing them that much of the city’s water transporting pipes are still made of lead.
The message is kind of contradictory, admitting the pipes are problematic, while assuring residents that it’s safe because they have a “successful lead corrosion control program.”
According to Cincinnati.com:
City leaders here in Cincinnati don’t want citizens to panic. Greater Cincinnati Water Works closely monitors its water and has never had a lead violation, according to officials. Cincinnati has had a successful lead corrosion control program that has protected customers for years.
But the pipes’ mere existence can cause a threat, officials confirm.
The elected bureaucrats of Flint, Michigan hesitated to inform residents about contaminated water for as long as they possibly could; knowing how officials can be, is this a sign that Cincinnati water is already dangerous?
The corruption is inherent. Shady politicians, crumbling infrastructure, diverted funds and negligence, pure and simple.
