Flint Fallout Could Cost US $300 Billion In Infrastructure Upgrades to Replace Lead Pipes

The Flint water contamination scandal could result in stricter rules and potentially cost water utility companies nationwide some $300 billion in infrastructure upgrades to remove all lead pipelines to insure the quality of H2O provision for American households.
Fitch Ratings study said that the Flint, Michigan water mayhem could potentially force water utility companies to replace an estimated six million lead service lines across the country if the Environmental Protection Agency enforces stricter regulations because of the crisis. The cost for such an overhaul is estimated by Fitch to exceed $275 billion.
