A school facilities director in Nashville, Tennessee, was caught on tape talking about ways to trick students and parents into thinking that unfiltered school water was actually being filtered to remove lead.
Dennis Neal, the facilities director, is now on administrative leave from the school.
In this Tennessee school, parents of students bought water stations and filters for the school to install.
The talk then turned to how to trick students and parents into thinking that the filters were in place without having to pay for them.
The Flint water crisis, which began in 2011, was the result of another attempted cost-saving measure.
