Michigan law states parents are neglectful if they do not have running water in their home, and if they chose not to pay for water they can’t drink anyway, then they could be guilty of child endangerment. Flint residents have recently filed two class action lawsuits calling for all water bills since April of 2014 to be considered null and void because of the fact that the water was poisonous.“Essentially, residents have been getting billed for water they cannot use. Estimates it could take 15 years, $60 million to fix the problem, Despite the fact that the issue is obviously the government’s responsibility, they have made it illegal for people to sell their homes because they are known to carry contaminated water. Residents left to purchase bottled water on their own, in addition to paying their water bill.
