Flint OK's plan to get water from pipeline project

(AREA) -- Flint is moving forward on plans to get its water by participating in a pipeline project that would tap Lake Huron. Monday night's Flint City Council vote sets in motion a process that would end Flint's use of water from Detroit. Under the proposal, Flint would get 16 million gallons of water per day from Lake Huron, pipe it to Flint for treatment and then sell it to city customers. Another 2 million gallons per day would come from the Flint River and would be treated in Flint. The state must approve Flint's plans, which aim to save millions of dollars a year. The Karegnondi Water Authority project could serve Flint and Lapeer as well as residents elsewhere in Genesee, Lapeer and Sanilac counties.
