https://democracynow.org – In Puerto Rico, residents desperate for drinking water have begun pumping water from the Dorado Groundwater Contamination Site?a hazardous waste Superfund site. The EPA warns the water contains chemicals that cause liver damage and an increased risk of cancer. We speak with Rosa Clemente, just back from Puerto Rico, where she joined other independent journalists in documenting conditions for a project called PR on the Map, including at the Dorado site. She also interviewed San Juan Mayor Carmen Yul?n Cruz about her message for the Puerto Rican diaspora.
