Residents of Flint will finally get their lead pipes replaced as a result of a settlement agreement being considered by a federal judge today.

The lawsuit was filed in response to the Flint water crisis, the result of failed government decisions that caused lead to leach out from aging pipes into thousands of homes in Flint.
