Last week, the Fountain Valley Clean Water Coalition announced Rob Bilott, the attorney who took on DuPont and won (over PFAS contamination in Parkersburg, West Virginia), will appear and speak at Mesa Ridge High School Tuesday, April 17, at 7 p.m. (See related ad on page 2.) His visit is sponsored by Colorado College and will be followed by a presentation by CC students who have been looking in depth at the various issues related to our local water contamination.

"Please arrive early and learn more about this contamination problem that is nationwide," FVCWC leader Liz Rosenbaum said.

Editor's Note: It was Bilott's story in the New York Times that made our News staff aware of local water contamination issues, which launched our continuing coverage related to it.
