The article, Water Shortage: 6 Things to Know sheds some light on America’s growing water crisis and what communities are doing to address the issues.
Environmental Education Director, Darryl Haddock was quoted in the article and talked about the water quality problems faced by West Atlanta and other predominantly African American communities that result from aging infrastructure, outdated treatment processes, and illegal dumping.
The article further alludes to an important community victory for environmental justice that was achieved in the 1990s when plans for a combined sewage overflow (CSO) facility was defeated in Southwest Atlanta’s John A. White Park.
