Is our water safe to drink? Can we trust the agencies whose job it is to monitor water safety?

This film documents a major chemical spill poisoning the drinking water in West Virginia, addresses the recent Flint Water Crisis, and investigates the agencies responsible for water safety oversight. Our panel will also address drinking water safety concerns in Ann Arbor and elsewhere in Michigan due to the presence of PFAS.
