Every day, we turn on a faucet to get a glass of water, brush our teeth or to cook. We take for granted that the water coming out of the tap is safe. But how do we know when our water is at risk? And how can we as advocates engage with government representatives to protect the quality of our water?
Join us for a discussion about the safety and affordability of clean water in Johnson County and what we need to do to keep it that way.
Saturday, April 6
9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
Mike Armstrong, general manager, WaterOne
Elaine Giessel, chair, Kanza Chapter of the Kansas Sierra Club
