Mom tells daughter that Sarita's parents are at the hospital. The doctor says they are poisoned by the water they consume at the village nearby. They get their water from the river into which the steel plant nearby discharges untreated waste. The company operating the plant was recently punished for it.
What happened, Mom? Where's Sarita?
Sarita's at the hospital. She says her parents have been affected by water poisoning.
I will get dinner ready in a few minutes. Can you get the plates ready, Sonya?
If I remember right, Sarita's parents live near the Supreme Steel Plant.
Oh right! They were exposed recently for dumping toxic waste into the local river.
That's terrible! They need to be held accountable for their actions!
I studied this yesterday. About how toxic runoff from metal plants enter rivers and affects the people living downstream.
Yes, they should be! But don't we also have a responsibility here? We are eating from steel plates, after all.
