Periodic Tables science gathering. Every drink of water is a risk: Where did it come from? How did it get there? What chemicals or microbes are in it? Who processed it and how well? Come listen to an interdisciplinary group of Duke University students showcase their creative projects, sharing insights they learned from communities and stakeholders across the state about the kinds of risks they encounter in their drinking water. This Periodic Tables presentation focuses on three different case studies that explore water and risk in North Carolina: lead contamination in Durham, coal ash impoundments in Belmont, and aging infrastructure in Orange County. Collectively, these case studies make visible the structural risks built into our politics, laws, and infrastructure. Reserve your $5 ticket here.
