Environmentalist taking sample of Illinois polluted water

 If you drink water you will want to hear this. In Illinois for years government officials have known about contaminated drinking water, and until recently have done nothing about it.

For obvious reasons the local, state, and federal governments don’t want the public to know about these issues, that is until there is money involved.
