Editorial: California requiere una inversión en agua potable

ON Oct 03, 2017

En California tenemos un gran problema con respecto al agua. Aunque siempre oímos de la falta de agua en California, un problema serio que todavía tenemos es que hay hasta un millón de personas en nuestro estado que no tienen agua potable. Hay más de 300 comunidades que la calidad del agua potable está por debajo de los estándares federales.

" CWC has stepped in at all stages... to improve drinking water quality in the Central Valley, from testifying to policymakers to organizing to working to get local projects funded. "
