Michigan city is GRIDLOCKED by residents rushing to get free bottled water after they were warned not to cook or brush their teeth using tap water because of lead contamination that can cause brain damage

A Michigan city has been gridlocked by residents rushing to get free bottled water after they were warned not to cook or brush with their tap water after vast amounts of lead were detected.

Officials in Benton Harbor have sent out notices, distributed fliers and tried to improve the water system since high levels of lead were first detected in 2018, the New York Times reports, but now state officials are telling residents not to use it at all.

Instead, they have been handing out bottled water at sites throughout the community, causing long lines and jamming traffic in the city of 9,100 residents.
