Eastern Standard: Our Drinking Water

Nov 29, 2018

We humans are roughly 60 percent water. So its purity and abundance make or break the quality of our lives, not to mention our physical well-being. But from Martin County, Kentucky to Karachi, Pakistan, drinking water is imperiled (Kentucky alone is estimated to have some $6 billion in needed water infrastructure upgrades.)

 


Updates on the situation in Martin Co.; a conversation with a water company executive on that infrastructure shortfall; the costs of making it right: Lexington's EPA Consent Decree; an interview on how one public institution (EKU) has won national attention for its water sustainability efforts; and, a vivid trek to one of the worst drinking water scenes on the planet: Karachi.
