Brava Ms Walters! That the water crisis is on going breaks my heart.

The fact that the person who actually made the decision to switch the drinking water supply is not in prison for this literal assault speaks very poorly for our country.

This is so exciting; to see her get an award, and to watch the video, A scientist, who organized tests in each different zip code. Am so grateful for this . Keep going, it is
so shameful that the Gov. Snyder cut you all off from supplies of bottled water. He should
be held accountable, by the federal court.
Thank you.
