CHARLESTON, W.Va. (Jeff Morris) -- People still have a myriad of questions about the water crisis, and Eyewitness News wants to get you some answers and provide a forum to voice your opinions on a disaster that has rocked our region.

Join us this week for "West Virginia Water Crisis: What Now?" -- a town hall forum that will feature a live audience and a heavy hitter panel of experts, including environmental activist Erin Brockovich.

The "Your Voice, Your Future" town hall meeting hosted by Eyewitness News is scheduled from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 29, at the Clay Center in Charleston. The forum will be broadcast on WCHS TV from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., and the entire town hall meeting will be live streamed on our website at wchstv.com.

In addition to Brockovich, our panel of experts will include Dr. Rahul Gupta of the Kanawha-Charleston Health Department, Randy Huffman, cabinet secretary of the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection; environmental investigator Bob Bowcock; Johnny Banks, lead investigator for the U.S. Chemical Safety Board; and Mike Dorsey, chief of homeland security emergency response. They will field questions from the audience and those submitted by our viewers through social media.

If you want to be part of the audience, you can register by completing the form on our website and providing a question for the panelists. Click to go to our registration page here

Space is limited due to the size of the venue. Submitting the form does not confirm your seat. Your seat will be confirmed by email. You must print and bring this email with you, as it will serve as your ticket.

We would like to thank The Clay Center for sponsoring this event.
