Register to join NIRS's next national telebriefing:
Dangerous Drinking Water
Wednesday, July 13 @ 8pm Eastern
(7pm Central, 6pm Mountain, 5pm Pacific)
The program will focus on US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Guidance that massively increases the permitted levels of radioactivity in drinking water for years after any nuclear incident that requires consideration of “protective action” ranging from a spill, leak or transport accident to a dirty bomb or nuclear meltdown—a nuclear accident of any kind big or small. Allowable concentrations of radioactive elements allowed to come out of your tap would rise hundreds or even thousands of times above the current Maximum Concentration Levels allowed under the Safe Drinking Water Act regulations.
The briefing will include the following presenters, and will be followed by questions and answers with the audience:
- Diane D’Arrigo, Radioactive Waste Project Director, Nuclear Information and Resource Service
- Emily Wurth, Water Program Director at Food and Watch
- Daniel Hirsch, Director, Program on Environmental and Nuclear Policy, University of California Santa Cruz
- Moderator: NIRS Executive Director, Tim Judson
After you register you will receive an email with the call-in number. The briefing will run for an hour to an hour-and-a-half.
