Residents there have been calling for an investigation of the water crisis for months, and the Senate scheduled a hearing a few weeks ago after receiving much criticism.

Senators will question experts from the Federal Environmental Protection Agency, and New York’s Department of Environmental Conservation, and Department of Health during a day session, and the public will ask questions in the evening.
