The water came from a FEMA storage facility in Texas, the church said.
Emergency officials said they sent 104, 000 liters of water that were stored in Fort Worth to Michigan Dec. 19. The seven truck loads of water had “Best Before” dates of January/February 2020. They are investigating the water in question.
“FEMA stores its disaster contingency stocks of water in its warehouses in accordance with producer guidance. We do this to avoid waste and allow for beneficial use,” officials said in a statement. "FEMA will continue to investigate the provenance of the water in question to include production date, manufacturer, storage, and shipment history, and take appropriate follow-up actions.”
More than 100 pallets of water were distributed during the weekend water giveaway, MLive reported.
