22. Can we get every household a lifetime supply of Pur water filters?

I'm not being ridiculous. I live in DC. We had a similar problem as Flint several years ago -- where somehow the condition of the water was causing it to leach lead from the pipes into the water supply. However, they caught it much sooner, and while they worked on experimenting with water conditioners to stop the leaching, they provided every single residence in DC with a Brita pitcher and filters. After all, that is what Brita filters do: get lead and other heavy metals out of the water.

People were grateful this brought to our attention and at least we had an interim solution. Holy solutions Batman, why on God's green earth is this not happening in Flint and elsewhere? Why are they just getting bottled Nestle water?
