Caption: Water pipe replacement. Worker working on the large-scale replacement of lead and galvanised steel water service lines in Flint, Michigan, USA. Flint's water supply became contaminated with lead after state officials decided in 2014 to take the city's drinking water from the Flint River without adequate treatment. The city hopes to replace pipes to 800 homes this autumn. Photographed on 3rd November 2016.
