Flint continues to struggle to replace damaged pipes.
Mayor Karen Weaver said bids from contractors to replace up to 500 service lines came in “extremely high”.
But there is an offer on the table that could potentially present the city with a big savings.
Walter Wang is the owner of JM Eagle, a California company that produces plastic pipes. Back in February, Wang offered to give the city enough plastic PVC pipe to replace thousands of damaged lead service lines for free.
But to date, Flint officials have not accepted Wang’s offer.
