Erin Brockovich views on how to tackle the Water Crisis

In the interview, Booker began the conversation by asking Why is Superman not coming? She replied that she visits communities that are dealing with water contamination and the people who are sick are seem to be reassured by the fact. “The EPA (Environmental protection agency) has shown this and everything is going to be okay or well”. But she always gets the bad news, no one’s coming to fix it.
The reporter asked her, what will you suggest to a viewer who assumes that there is something wrong with his water supply?’‘
Erin replied, “The first step, know your water source.
I’ve had so many conversations. People are like, I don’t know, my water company. I’m like, that’s one of the first things you might want to find out. Look at your water bill and if you don’t have or get every quarter some water quality report, which they have to give you – either get online, know who your water provider is. Get online or make a phone call and say, send me my water quality report and read it. That’s the first step.
Take a step. Just take an action and don’t come in with thinking I’m going to save the world. And don’t come in with the fear, what if I’m wrong? Who cares if you’re wrong? At least you asked. At least you found out. Knowledge is power”.
