What was the state and federal response to flooding events? Did they investigate contaminate spread and test for contamination?
The GAO did a great report on the impact of climate change on Superfund sites a year or two ago. The San Jacinto site was featured in this report. A conclusion is that EPA can do more. It is publicly available and should be fairly easy to find.
SUPERFUND:EPA Should Take Additional Actions to Manage Risks from Climate ChangeGAO-20-73: Published: Oct 18, 2019. Publicly Released: Nov 18, 2019.
Let me qualify — great in that it looked at the issue seriously. Sad with respect to how climate change is not currently considered adequately.
Answering an earlier question — some belated testing by EPA had a result that helped show the vulnerability of the San Jacinto site to storms. I don’t think the state did much.
In your interview you talked a bit about being a young woman in activism. Do you still often find yourself the youngest, or the only woman at the table? How does that make you feel, and how do you handle it?

As a woman of confidence, what guidance do you have for young women who are extremely passionate about the issues but have trouble coming across strong ans assertive?
what can men do differently to create inclusive environments at work, and in the movement?

Ang how has your organization help communicate?
