Billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer joins inland California’s clean water fight

Tom Steyer, the billionaire philanthropist and Democratic Party donor, took a break from trying to impeach President Donald Trump on Friday to visit the eastern Coachella Valley and learn about the water quality issues plaguing the region’s residents.

Steyer joined a delegation of local and state leaders on a tour of areas that have, for years, lacked clean drinking water, including a Thermal elementary school whose water source is an old, unreliable well. And while his efforts may not seem connected, Steyer said opposing the president’s agenda and pursuing impeachment stemmed from the same motivations that inform his environmental advocacy about issues including ensuring access to clean drinking water. – Desert Sun
