What’s in our water? Examining risks 10 years after Flint

What health risks lurk in U.S. tap water? Our expert panel will explore what’s changed since the water crisis in Flint, Mich., 10 years ago and what still needs to be done to protect U.S. consumers from potentially unsafe levels of lead, arsenic, PFAS chemicals, and other pollutants. We’ll also look at how policy change, community activism, and monitoring can improve water quality, particularly for the marginalized and low-income communities that are most likely to have hidden toxins in their drinking water.
