it's getting interesting
According to newly discovered emails, Michigan officials were trucking clean water to a state building in Flint in January 2015, long before they acknowledged to residents that the city had a contamination problem.

One of the emails, which were obtained by the group Progress Michigan, was sent from the state Department of Technology, Management, and Budget. It reads, "While the City of Flint states that corrective actions are not necessary, DTMB is in the process of providing a water cooler on each occupied floor, positioned near the water fountain, so you can choose which water to drink. The coolers will arrive today and will be provided as long as the public water does not meet treatment requirements."

The email was sent just days after the city sent out an advisory about high levels of a trihalomethanes in its water but maintained that, for healthy individuals, the water was safe to drink. Residents had been reporting smelly, tainted water and adverse health conditions related to it since shortly after Flint switched water sources in April 2014.
Workers

Long before helping Flint, Michigan officials were shipping clean water to their own workers

Over 90% of water taps were at 20ppb or less, which is considered acceptable. Experts conclude that the chemicals being used to correct the problem should be working effectively within 2 1/2 months. Chemicals which Flint was suppose to be using since switching water sources.
