A panel of national and regional experts will take part in a Charleston town hall forum Wednesday, Jan. 29 at the Clay Center in Charleston. "West Virginia Water Crisis What Now" features a live audience and includes environmental activist/consumer activist, Erin Brockovich. Other experts on the panel: Dr. Rahul Gupta of the Kanawha-Charleston Health Department, Randy Huffman, cabinet secretary of the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection and Johnny Banks, lead investigator for the U.S. Chemical Safety Board.

The forum runs from 5:30 p.m. - 7 p.m. and the first hour will be broadcast on WCHS TV. It will be live streamed on the station's website.

Due to the small venue,  audience members must register. Click to go to our registration page here.

Submitting the form does not confirm your seat. Your seat will be confirmed by email. You must print and bring this email with you, as it will serve as your ticket.

Brockovich appeared on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" in which she stated that those responsible for the environmental disaster should be prosecuted.

"They should [go to jail]," Brockovich said. "It's a crime."

The New York Times in 2009 ran a series of articles on nationwide water quality. A portion focused on Charleston , WV , and explained that most Clean Water Act violations are not enforced and responsible parties not forced into compliance.
