How to Stop the Drip, Drip, Drip of America’s Tap Water Health Crisis
Keynote address by Ken Cook, President and co-founder, Environmental Working Group
For decades Americans took our abundance of safe drinking water for granted. No more. Emerging science, high profile contamination problems, a growing public push for transparency about contaminants in our water, and new approaches to water testing and treatment are disrupting the status quo. How can citizens “hack” these new forces to clean up our water, prevent contamination in the first place, and hold governments and polluters accountable?
