The need for clean water is greatest in times of disasters, whether they be natural disasters, the COVID-19 pandemic, or when water is contaminated. But what does it take to make water available?
In this episode, we talk to people who go above and beyond to ensure that there is access to safe drinking water. We discuss how organizations in Michigan came together to help Flint residents when lead contaminated the water supply, how a lack of water contributed to the spread of COVID-19 in the Navajo Nation, and how disaster relief and collaboration take many forms.
