Cullen Hoback’s Documentary What Lies Upstream
Water and Soil Testing Campaign
Your regulators and environmental policemen are not doing their jobs.
It’s time we change that.
We don’t need a wall between Mexico and the US, but we do need a wall between science and politics.
It’s good for scientists and for politicians. And it can restore faith in the system again.
To make a change, we need to admit that we are facing an invisible problem.
Like we saw in Flint and West Virginia, it’s up to you and your community to expose it.
Subscribe to learn more about our water and soil testing campaign.
Protect your water
1. Look at local water quality reports, or CCR - consumer confidence reports. They can be found on your local water system website and are updated in July of every year.
2. Use a basic water filtration system. From activated carbon filters to reverse osmosis systems.
3. Get a lead test kit.
4. Don't use antibacterial cleaning products. Choose non-toxic household products whenever possible.
5. Never flush unwanted or out-of-date medicines down the toilet or the drain.
6. Spread the word and be a water advocate.
