President-elect Biden: Water Must Be a National Priority

Originally published at http://www.commondreams.org/views/2020/12/29/president-elect-biden-water-must-be-national-priority

I worked on a case on three small cities on the south side of Lake Okeechobee where the algae in the water reacted with the disinfected agents to produce what are called disinfected byproducts. Pregnant and aspiring pregnant wormen were told not to shower because the mist would get into their lungs and harm their fetuses. These people and poor. Environmental justice at its poorest. Water IS a HUMAN RIGHT. The article cites up to a million jobs could be created. I will tell you many more are required. Our water infrastructure is a national shame.

Let 'em drink Fiji Water or Nestle’s? We’ve just elected the folks who OK’d Obama deadly charade in Flint and gavaging watered-down, radium-flavored fracking brine to Pittsburgh?
