July 11, 2018, 10:35 PM

Elon Musk, chief executive officer of Tesla Inc. and Space Exploration Technologies Corp., vowed to pay to secure fresh water for Flint, Mich., homes.

The city’s water supply was contaminated with lead after the state changed its source in 2014.

“Please consider this a commitment that I will fund fixing the water in any house in Flint that has water contamination above FDA levels,” Musk said in a tweet. “No kidding.”
