Clean Water for All: Reflecting on the 2014 Water Crisis and Shaping a Water-Secure Future
Ten years ago, Freedom Industries threatened the health of 300,000 West Virginians when a chemical used to clean impurities from coal leaked from a tank into the Elk River, upstream from the West Virginia American Water municipal water intake and distribution center. This devastating occurrence had far-reaching consequences that called for accountability from polluters and emphasized the need for a water-secure future. Ten years later, our work is far from over.
Please join WV CAG, the WV Rivers Coalition and other partners as we reflect on the 10th Anniversary of the 2014 Water Crisis and shaping a water-secure future.
