Standpipe: Delivering Water To Flint

AQUAhydrate, a California water bottling company, donates bottled water to Flint residents.  Sean Combs and Mark Walhberg invest in and promote the pricey brand.  The water is known here as “Diddy Water”.  Someone tells me on days when AQUAhydrate is available free at city wide state-run distribution pods, demand quickly exceeds supply, creating tension between residents and water workers.  Diddy Water I’m told, is a valuable underground commodity with strong social media legs.  What distinguishes water inside AQUAhydrate bottles from Flint tap is the set up to a bad joke, from water bottled by the competition is anyone’s guess.
