Recent incidents in Flint, Michigan and Hoosick Falls, New York have brought to light the problems with many municipal water systems. This week on WRVO's health and wellness show "Take Care," hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak with Richard Anderson, senior advisor to the U.S. Conference of Mayors Water Council about the state of the country's water infrastructure. Anderson has held that position since 1999.

More of this interview can be heard on "Take Care," WRVO's health and wellness show Saturday at 6:30 a.m. and Sunday at 6:30 p.m. Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
