Many of us who live in the Bay Area take clean, accessible drinking water for granted. But many BIPOC communities report that their tap water is neither clean nor affordable, including East Palo Alto.  California’s Integrated Regional Water Management program, funded by a 2014 ballot measure, allowed the San Francisco Estuary Partnership to work with Bay Area frontline communities to learn more about their drinking water challenges — and the results are eye-opening. This presentation features James Muller from San Francisco Estuary Partnership and Rosa Nelson, Nuestra Casa’s water justice program coordinator, hosted by Laura Feinstein of SPUR. Rosa’s segment includes background on water access and quality in East Palo Alto.
