Starting in March Flint will have to pay 100% of their water bills. Even while Flint is receiving credits they still have some of the highest water rates in the nation, and this is water they couldn’t even use. These rates are said to be almost eight times the national average of the nations rates, according to an investigator for environmentalist Erin Brochovich. These rates are discovered to be so high because Flint is paying for more than just their water. Flint pays an average of One million dollars a month for their water from Detroit and another $440,000 to cover the KWA pipeline debt.
