From Pittsburgh to Flint, the Dire Consequences of Privatizing Ailing Public Water Systems

The rise in lead levels was preceded in both cases by a miscalculation related to chemicals used to control corrosion in water pipes. Officials in both cities have faced criticism for their inaction and failure to alert the public. And in both places, lead levels remain dangerously high.

The two lead crises have another important thing in common: a private water company named Veolia.
