The Michigan Water Supply goes in shambles when one of the multinational companies dives into to take away water for commercial use.
The deadly flint river – The Governor, Rick Snyder, switched the water supplies of the Flint County, Michigan from the largest water reservoir on the Flint River. The river is contaminated with a number of toxics as well as air and water pollutants. The germs in the contaminated water have harmed a number of people. Mainly the children have been its major target. A number of children have been diagnosed with brain damage, such as PAM (primary amoebic meningoencephalitis) which is caused by the toxic water.
Why did Mr. Governor switch the water lines? Is it his personal gain, or some poor planning? It’s still unknown, but hundreds of residents of the Flint County have been protesting against his decision. They demand to reserve the lines as they were in the past. Snyder has allowed Nestle to take away 200 gallons of water every minute, from the Michigan water reserves.Some evidence clear that the Governor’s office have been in connection with the water giants. There had been some business affair between the two, which caused the people of Flint County to bear the brunt.

The recent fatalities have created a sense of fear in the community. People are frightened of taking bath and drinking water, as it is cause irreversible disease in the inhabitants.
The water giant, Nestle, had been barred from taking away water of Michigan in 2003. The water war continued for long. But the ultimate results are the consequences the people of Flint County are facing. Nestle further plans to suck 210 million gallons of water from Michigan.
As like Flint, there are a number of other areas in the U.S that are affected by the wrath of such beverage giants. The prominent among those is Kunkletown, which won their water race, as the Flint County did by making the water giants to return their water.
Nestle along with PepsiCo, CocaCola, and some others have announced that they will give 6.5 million of water bottles to 10,000 school students of Flint, Michigan.
