4:44 pm
but quite honestly, there's a long way to go. because of the racial, not just insensitivity, but in justice. the average income here is about $32000.00 a year just above the poverty line for a family of 4. here at lake michigan, the water is lead free. it picks up the lead as it course is through the cities aging pipe. so there's water everywhere. it's just not safe to drink. so far, the city has promises of $18000000.00 of the $28000000.00 it will take to replace all of its lead supply pipes. it will have to find the remaining $10000000.00 somewhere to finish the project on time. in 2023, john 100 al jazeera benton harbor, michigan. when i speak to elan worn, ben cancel about this. she's joining us from detroit and his a founder and owner of safe water engineering, a consulting firm. very good to have you with us. this of course has echoes of the

4:46 pm
a solid lead piece of metal that carries water into a home. and when water is in contact with lead, that lead will dissolve into the waters. corrosion control can help bring it down, but it is not perfect. so the work that they've been doing, they skipped doing a study to see what would be most effective. they just started dosing it for the lab is still here and in contact with the water. so the best way to stop lead from getting into the water is to remove these pipes. what impact has this hot on, on people's health? well, so 3 years, we suspect probably more than 3 years of latin, the water that's drinking lead in your water. every single day that's over a 1000 days of exposure to lead and water led us opponent irreversible neural toxin is the most dangerous to infants and young children with their neurologic development. and it also has many health impacts for adults with kidney disease and
