Water Privatization

Hosted by

Renee Maas is the water program organizer for Food and Water Watch’s Los Angeles office.  Since the water infrastructure in many municipalities are in need of repair, some cities are selling their water rights to private companies.  Renee argues that this practice brings rate hikes and poorer quality water.  More about Food and Water Watch's view on the privatization of public water systems here

 

Food and Water Watch's "Take back the Tap" campaign advocates the use of tap water.  They believe that tap water should be safe and affordable for everyone.
