Flint residents forced to leave apartment buildings without water

Flint ó Flint officials are telling some residents of an apartment building complex to leave their homes because they donít have running water.

The Flint Journal reports residents of two Glen Acre buildings were told Tuesday they had to leave by Wednesday. Condemnation notices were posted on their doors saying the property is unfit for occupancy.

A city spokesman says tenants in two buildings that have water will be allowed to stay.

A property management company spokeswoman says the owners have a payment schedule for a water bill at the buildings with working water. She says there isnít a similar plan for the other buildings.

She says copper pipe thefts have led to large water spills and city charges of more than $150,000.
