<<When a problem does arise, such as the Flint, MI water issue, THEN government regulators wax indignant and get busy pointing fingers at lax practices and such.

The Flint water crisis was created by right wing politicians controlling the MI govt. They CHOSE to *not* follow standard practices in the industry. They CHOSE to withhold samples they KNEW would fail testing. They CHOSE to submit ONLY samples they knew WOULD pass testing. Hence, criminal charges were filed. But the real criminals were allowed to escape with no real punishment.>>

Oh, there was plenty of government regulation, including the Federal EPA. None of it effective.

But thank you for pointing out the futility of government regulation.
