FeatureA Primer on Pennsylvania’s Water Crisis: Challenges Impacting Every Community

One of Pennsylvania’s great historic struggles is providing every citizen access to clean water for drinking, recreation, farming, and industry. It’s an unfortunate story of the Commonwealth turning a blind eye to pollution for the benefit of industry, failing to lead in times of crisis, and ignoring water pollution problems for so long, they’re almost intractable. Water is Life Month outlines the problems and solutions with a series of new blogs.
