including emails from shkreli. last year, shkreli sent an email to the chairman of the board of directors writing : "one billion dollars, here we come." tim: the debate over how to solve flint michigans water issues continues. some have suggested that the city should get rid of all lead pipes. but before that can happen, someone has to figure out whe those pipes are. that's what a professor and his team at the university of michigan-flint have been doing for the past 10 days. they were hired by the mayor to map out lead pipes. natalie za-row-ny explains why, despite their hard work, there are still a lot of unknowns. " " " the information is gonna be spotty, but what we do, what we should be able to get a handle on is where there are concentrations of lead to at least start." professor marty kaufman of university of michigan-flint has been leading the team that's mapping out where flint's lead pipes are. they're working off maps from the 1980's, with data dating back to the 1950's. there are more than 50,000 redential plots in the city. each one is marked with what the service lines are made of.

"it might be better to go into the homes we think have lead and verify it." most houses in flint were built before lead pipes were banned. that's why kaufman says action needs to be taken soon - which is possible. "i mean, right now, the frost line is only about 5 inches because we've had a warm winter. we can dig now. when you've lost confidence in a public water supply, you have to take measures to redeem that confidence to the public." tim kaufman'team will be done mapping the lead lines that they know of in the next couple days. the data will then
