'St. Louis Water Crisis'

Thursday, 06 April, 2017

Sponsored by Billikens 4 Clean Water, this Atlas Week event focuses on education about the worsening water crisis, specifically in our own city of St. Louis.

Following water testing this past summer, dangerous levels of lead were recorded in many water sources of St. Louis schools.

This presentation will delve into the physical and social effects of high lead levels in water and, additionally, will discuss St. Louis's historic fight for clean water and the consequences of lack of privilege on an individual's right to clean water.
