YouTuber Elijah Daniel is very close to the water crisis in Flint, Michigan these days.
In 2014 the source of drinking water was switched from the Lake Huron and the Detroit River to the Flint River for Flint residents. The water was confirmed to be contaminated with a poisonous metal lead after multiple reports of residents health problem came about. Many activists and citizens have been fighting to end this problem and help Flint residents get back to a clean water supply.
