Musk clearly regards this tweets as a challenge. He responded in a few minutes, saying, "please look at what I say as a promise: I will pay for water pollution for any Flint household with more water pollution than the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standard. It's not a joke. "
Mask went on to say that now, Flint residents can reply to him in the tweets, releasing the PPM values and testing results of each drinking water. If their drinking water pollution exceeds the FDA standard, he will send someone to his home to install water filters. He also said he would create an e-mail address, firstname.lastname@example.org, which began online on Thursday because he is currently visiting China.
Musk will contribute to the solution of the Flint water crisis
He pointed out that most of Flint's households had safe drinking water, but they lost confidence in the government's test results. At the same time, there are still some households drinking water abnormality. Mask said he will arrange a weekend to install filters for these households.
The local government says Flint's drinking water is now safe to drink. However, many local residents do not think so. Tests released by the Michigan state government in April showed that the lead content of Flint's water was 4 ppb, which was lower than that of FDA's 15 ppb.
A week ago, Mask sent his SpaceX and Boring engineers to Thailand to help rescue the teenage football team trapped in the cave, and designed a submarines for children. Last year, Mask also provided Tesla energy storage batteries to Puerto Rico, which was interrupted after Hurricane Maria struck.
