Flint Town Plot: What is it about?
The first season of the show was set in Flint, Michigan, and the events portrayed took place in the aftermath of the Flint water crisis which began in 2014, after the drinking water source for the city of Flint was changed to the Flint River from its earlier sources, Lake Huron and the Detroit River. The crisis, which saw lead seep into drinking water owing to insufficient water treatment, exposed as many as 100,000 residents to elevated levels of lead.
