Mtn. Talk Monday: Gail Brion Ph.D – Problems with Water Systems Infrastructure in Eastern Kentucky
In this episode of Mountain Talk Monday, Benny Becker (WMMT and Ohio Valley ReSource) talks to University of Kentucky Engineering Professor Gail Brion Ph.D, who is also a waterborne illness expert. Brion and Becker discuss our crumbling water systems infrastructure throughout the eastern Kentucky coalfields. The pair also relate the current efforts to remedy these issues with the early movement of environmental activism to show how the distinct difference between environmental justice and environmental change are behind the lack of action we see today.
