Flint’s Director of Public Works, Rob Bincsik, informs people that they are grateful for the funding, however, there is still more funding needed to fix the water crisis. He says, “These projects will help the short and long term sustainability of the water system in the city of Flint, but as stated in the Water Distribution Optimization Plan the water system needs in excess of another $300 million in capital improvements over the next 20 years.”
