    Despite Washington State’s abundant water resources, the different regions of the state experience unique challenges when it comes to drinking water. The recent events of Flint, Michigan have highlighted the importance of best science and responsible decision-making when it comes to drinking water resources.  Ginny will unravel the emerging issues - climate change, infrastructure, contamination and growth - and how they relate to the regulations needed to secure the future of Washington’s drinking water.”
