River Spills & Polluter Pay - Capitol Connection webinar

The Huron River should be known as a prime place in Southeast Michigan to kayak, fish, and take in the beauty of nature. Unfortunately, companies like Tribar Manufacturing continuously threaten these activities by polluting our water. Tribar's made fish and beef unsafe to eat by spilling PFAS, and in August it spilled the chemical hexavalent chromium into the Huron River.

Tribar is the most infamous, recent example of a company that is not held accountable for its pollution. Without accountability, change does not happen. Join the Rebecca Esselman, executive director of the Huron River Watershed Council, as we discuss what happened with Tribar and how it speaks to the need for laws that keep companies from polluting.
