Any solution? State should take care of this issue but it is possible to boil and filter water like third world. Why always opt for bottles?

Are there absolutely no government programs to help these individuals move? I have a feeling we're not getting the whole story here.

You are right. Article say that they don't want to move because apparently they like that place. I mean people move over continents for better life. May be they are holding on for better offers than section 8 housing. Who knows!

He's lived there since the 1960's. He must like the place.

I am not sure how I feel about this. If the average income for residents is $721 p/h they are obviously receiving gov't aid. Then they should be getting section aid right? Well I understand it can take a few yrs sometimes to actually get section 8 housing but there are people who have been there since the 60's. When your income is majority comprised of govt support then you CAN move.

Someone posted a thread about this about a month or two ago I think and I didn't think it was even real. I googled the town's name back then and came up with this Facebook page : https://www.facebook.com/The-Lost-Co...4102/timeline/

I believe the person that posted the original thread also posted this 1985 D Magazine article : The Lost Community of Sandbranch - D Magazine
