Today, renowned consumer advocate Erin Brockovich will be visiting the Navajo Nation to survey the damage of last month’s Gold King Mine Spill and consult with President Russell Begaye.

In a statement, President Begaye said, “The Navajo Nation has been culturally and economically devastated by the impact of the Golf King Mine Spill and we need help to address this crisis, we appreciate Ms. Brockovich’s willingness to visit our Nation to witness the damage first hand and help raise awareness about the plight of our people.”

On Friday, the Navajo Nation’s request for assistance from FEMA was denied.

The EPA also has stated that they will be removing water tanks from the Navajo Nation.
