After attempting to rescue boys trapped in an underground cave in Thailand, Elon Musk is onto his next deed: fixing the water crisis in Flint, Michigan. The Flint water crisis began four years ago when officials changed the city’s water source to Flint River — a cheaper source with dangerous levels of lead from old pipes, poisoning thousands of residents.

Elon Musk Tweeted on Wednesday that he would arrange and pay for the installation of water filters in all Flint home whose water contamination reads above FDA levels. In following Tweets, the Tesla founder asked residents who need clean water to contact him with test results of their home’s water quality.
