The face of an American Hero

June 18, 2018 Leave a comment

I write a lot about drinking water contamination and the importance of keeping water storage tanks and towers clean.  I haven’t written about people that much but this is about both drinking water contamination and a particular person I think is an American Hero.

Pediatrician Mona Hanna-Attisha or Dr. Monica as her young patients call her, did not plan her life to be a hero and I am sure she doesn’t see herself that way now, but she is.  She is the person that made enough noise, would not take, “your wrong” or “everything is ok”, for an answer.  After noticing many of her young Flint, MI patients had lead poisoning, she suspected the water supply.  She is the person at the right place at the right time that stood up to say, something is very wrong here and she was not going to go away. 

Her story was covered on CBS Sunday Morning this past Fathers Day.  I had the opportunity to watch with my son and infant grandson. My son made the comment that she is a REAL AMERICAN HERO. I could not agree more.

I titled this, “The Face of an American Hero”, because Dr.  Mona Hanna-Attisha was born in Iraq and raised in Michigan after her family fled the regime of Saddam Hussein.  Being a true American is not about where you were born but about who you are and who you want to be. It has always been about doing the right thing. The USA has always attracted the best and brightest the world has to offer. I think we are very lucky to count her as one of us, and I wanted to share her story.  

She has written a book,  “What The Eyes Don’t See See“, by Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha.

The Mess in Missouri

Chris Hayes from Fox2 News in St Louis, Missouri recently interviewed me for a story he did about a water tank in Leadwood, Missouri. The tank had been inspected once about 17 years ago and as far as anyone knew, had never been cleaned. Chris was contacted by some residents of the community who had brown water coming out of their taps.

I was happy to contribute both video and comments to this story. Water storage tanks should be inspected yearly for public safety, even if the state they are in has no regulations at all. Mr. Hayes did a great job. He found the larger systems around St. Louis had all been recently inspected. Many smaller systems seem to fall back on regulations to decide what is really important.

Although the state of Missouri has no written regulation or rules on when tanks should be inspected they do say this about the inspection and cleaning of water storage tanks: “…clearly necessary to protect public health.”

You would not drink out of a dirty glass, why do these people have to drink water from a dirty tank?  See the video on our Company Facebook Page:

The Tank Diver

March 23, 2016 Leave a comment

We have been working on a documentary about clean drinking water for over two years. There is no shortage of water contamination issues in the news these days. Drinking water is under attack all over the country. The solution to many water problems may be as simple as keeping the tanks clean. We have an important story to tell and it’s time to raise some funds to finish it up. I hope you will be a part of this important project! https://igg.me/at/whatsinyourwater/x/11623864

You would not drink out of a dirty glass. Too many water utilities make people drink from dirty water storage tanks. The problem has remained OUT OF SIGHT AND OUT OF MIND for too long. Help us fund this project and show your support for as little as $2. Check out our preview and help us put a bright light on this dark problem.

News Crew Covers Tower Cleaning and possible EPA Changes

I thought This was a great story!

Ron Perrin Clean Water Tank Project

November 7th, 2014, Ginger Allen and the CBS 11 i-Team watches as my company inspects and cleans a north Texas water tower. The tower was cleaned as a normal maintenance procedure. A light- brown dusting of sediment was removed from the interior floor before it could get deep enough to support bacteria and become a problem.  

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The tower was cleaned by a Commercial Diver who was trained at OCEAN CORP, Houston, Texas. The Diver is sealed in his own environment, then washed down with a chlorine solution. Because we specialize in the inspection and cleaning of Potable Water Storage Facilities, all of our equipment is purchased for, and only used in, potable water.

This utility is doing a great job of maintaining their system. However, utility managers across the country struggle to get the funds to properly maintain their systems. The EPA is currently considering a regulation that…
