Adding more weight to the storm, a public interest group now says that the residents of Flint, Michigan paid more for water last year than most Americans.

The authors of a study and article by the public interest group Food and Water Watch, Mary Grant and Jo Miles, say that the people of Flint paid an average of $850 for their water last year.  That is almost twice the national average, and more than three times what the residents of Detroit - less than seventy miles away from Flint.

The report, titled "The State of Water in the United States," is available for download.
