EcoMovie 2019: Keeping the Potomac: The Politics of Water
Sunday, March 17 3 - 5 pm
Clara Barton Community Center, 7425 MacArthur Blvd., Cabin John, MD 20818
You are invited to join us at a free screening of the inspirational documentary Keeping the Potomac: The Politics of Water. More than six million people live in the Potomac watershed area, and whether they know it or not, some of the very infrastructure that supports their modern lifestyles is poisoning the Potomac River. It is the mission of three River Keepers to patrol the Potomac and do what they must to protect it. The film, featuring Brent, Dean, and Mark, looks at efforts to stem agricultural nutrient pollution along the Shenandoah River in Virginia and West Virginia, a major tributary to the Potomac; a pipeline in Allegany County, Maryland that pumps effluent from a Westernport wastewater treatment plant into the upper Potomac River; and coal ash disposal ponds at Possum Point Power Plant in Dumfries, Virginia and their impact on the lower Potomac.
We hope you will join for the film and the discussion with Producer Elizabeth Herzfeldt-Kamprath!
