Businessman says he has solution for water crisis

Posted: Updated:

A businessman who deals with disaster said he knows how to help Flint.

Percy Jones founded a company called Prevail Water, which played a major role in helping Haiti when the island nation was devastated by an earthquake in 2010.

It purifies water, loads into tanker trucks and delivers it to homes 55-gallon drums that hook into existing pipelines.

"If indeed the powers to be really wants to provide the end users, which is the people with a convenient of having water without the hassle of having to go out, pick it up, or open their doors to strangers to bring it in, this is the way to go," Jones said.

Jones said he came up with the idea after Hurricane Katrina.
