“I’m looking forward to a lively discussion,” says program host Dan Ringer. “Water safety is something we all take for granted and this incident has shown just how fragile our water resources are. I’m hoping this episode of The Law Works will help people better understand their rights and expectations when it comes to managing natural resources we all depend on.”
