On Thursday, Jan. 5, 2017 SAVE OUR WATER CT and PROTECT OUR WATERSHEDS CT will present a community water forum, including a showing of the documentary film, “Tapped.” The event will take place at the New Britain Public Library, 20 South High Street, New Britain.
Water is our most precious natural resource. CT is experiencing severe drought, with many communities taking extreme measures to conserve and acquire water. It is critical that we protect our water. Come and learn more about this important issue.
“Tapped” is an award-winning documentary about the bottled water industry and its effects on our health, climate change, and pollution. As Niagara Water Bottling Co. builds its plant in Bloomfield, CT, it is time to educate ourselves about the impact of the water bottling industry on our water supplies and our environment. At the same time, New Britain is facing threats to its protected, watershed lands which are crucial to maintaining safe drinking water. Members of Save Our Water CT and Protect Our Watersheds CT will be present for a Q and A after the showing and to give an update on citizens’ efforts to protect CT’s water.
It is time for all of us in CT to educate ourselves -water threats can happen anywhere in our state.

Your voice matters in protecting state watershed lands from harmful development.
Come and talk - and hear your neighbors talk - about life near the quarry - noise from the mining operation, tremors from the blasts, cracks in the walls, dust hanging in the air, and concerns about chemical residues.
Come and learn what can be done about this.
Come and hear why a growing number of people in the region oppose the proposed expansion of the Tilcon quarry onto New Britain's watershed land.
Come and hear what is happening with the independent environmental impact evaluation the City of New Britain must commission to ascertain what long-term and permanent affects such a plan will have on our drinking water, land, ecosystem, air, and the well-being of future generations.
Come and see how you can voice to your concerns about this issue as it develops.
Enjoy coffee and pastries and a great chat with us!
