After last year’s train derailment in East Palestine, a local stream remains contaminated. We’ll examine why residents living about the polluted water are still concerned. We talk with a Pennsylvania resident just over the Ohio border who decided not to live full-time in her home. We find out what led to her decision and how she became an activist pushing for answers.
