posted November 1, 2015

How much uranium and radiation are in our groundwater? How much is in the crops that we irrigate with it? “Are the thirty-eight million people in the American Southwest aware that their water supply is filtered through 16 million tons of radioactive waste lying on the banks of the Colorado River?” And who is most adversely affected?

Hot Water is the product of three years of research in nine states into the legacy of uranium mining and nuclear energy, and it’s one of those the more questions we ask, the more questions we have kind of situations.
