According to AccuWeather, hundreds of protesters traveled from Flint to the capital, Lansing, to protest the decision to stop the distribution of bottled water and the decision to grant Nestle increased access to Michigan's drinking water.
Nestle can now begin withdrawing water at a rate up to 400 gallons per minute from the White Pine Springs well located near Evart, Michigan, according to AccuWeather. They can withdraw more than 200,000 gallons of water per day under the Michigan Safe Drinking Water Act.
Snyder said on Twitter that Flint's water is safe to drink and has tested the same or better as similar cities across the state.
Data has shown Flint’s water is testing the same as or better than similar cities across the state. Therefore, the remaining four distributions centers will close and deliveries will end once the current supply of state-funded bottled water is exhausted. https://t.co/Pdeeqs2cG8 pic.twitter.com/uPmZtF7Wnm— Governor Rick Snyder (@onetoughnerd) April 6, 2018
