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.
