Bad Water

A former prisoner at Handlon CF in Ionia writes:

"Water quality here is atrocious. All staff are advised not to drink from the potable water supply. Instead, they are permitted to bring in gallon jugs of water to work with them, or to purchase bottled water. Meanwhile, prisoners are forced to drink dirty water. Facility maintenance workers confirm that staff sink fixtures contain water filters; prisoner sinks and water fountains inside housing units do not. Elected block representatives who push the issue are at first admonished. Should they continue to raise concerns they are discreetly transferred to other facilities."
