Flint, Michigan will soon get relief for their contaminated water issues that they have been dealing with for more than three years. 

W.T. Stevens Construction, a Michigan-based black-owned construction company, has been hired to replace 18,000 corroded residential water pipes in the city. To complete the mega-project, the company will hire over a dozen new employees, filling everything from clerical and labor, to plumbing positions. State and federal funds will be used to pay the multi-million contract, which is the “biggest contract”the company has ever landed, and increased their revenue by 70 percent. 

W.T. Stevens Construction is only one of four companies contracted to fix Flint’s piping issue. The company hopes to help replace 6,000 pipes by the end of the year, and 18,000 by the end of 2019.
