BENTON HARBOR, Mich. – The city of Benton Harbor is in the midst of a lead water crisis and it’s now getting national attention.
While Michigan is now taking action, some are asking why the problem wasn’t resolved when it was first exposed in 2018.
With the city dealing with a lead crisis, people are relying on filters and bottled water. In 2018, people complained about the smell and taste of the water.
The state has been working on putting resources into fixing the infrastructure, but some are asking why more wasn’t done sooner.
