the State and the local council of the city of Flint to carry out not only redemptive measures, but also to practise social responsibility. They need to be socially responsible to ensure the health of the residents is maintained. They should also operate under the ethical guidelines that promote safety. It will help to improve their public image, bolstered by applying corporate social responsibility and environmental ethics. For the start, the concerned entities need to give an apology to the residents of Flint [Sny16]. Secondly, there is need to decontaminate the Flint River by lowering the lead levels and other contaminants that could be in the water for future use. Consumers expect companies to behave in a responsible manner and address social and environmental issues. Plans should also be put in place to enhance access to medical schemes like Medicaid especially to the younger generation which was more susceptible to infections brought about by the contamination due to the intake of contaminated water (The United States, 2017). In conclusion, the city of Flint must take this as an important lesson in future implementation of any project. All the parties involved must ensure total adherence to laid down procedures and observe ethics in carrying out their duties. The administrative stakeholders should hold high ethical standards and do what is right. It will ensure they do not repeat such a mistake.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
