Rep. Watson Coleman, Sen. Sanders Introduce WATER Act to Improve Water Safety, Affordability, Access March 22, 2023
“Water is life and our communities in the desert depend on shared and clean, safe resources to sustain our lives and health from snow in the mountains in states east of us that offer that resource; but our warming planet is reducing that access. Toxics in our water tables from local industrial, military and air transportation hubs threaten the precious water that we do have; and the health of our marginalized, low-income communities, are at greater risk. Protecting our water requires a broad and inter-related approach to preserving life, health and sustainability of our communities everywhere,” said Barbara H. Warren, MD, MPH, E.D. of Physicians for Social Responsibility, Arizona Chapter.
