In 2020 Flint babies are still being bathed with bottled water, and kids are still experiencing outbreaks of rashes due to tap water.
Water in Flint won't be safe until all of the corroded lead pipes have been replaced and the medical community signs off on it. Until that happens, people are still lining up to get water wherever they can.
