Water’s plight

If you are in the Peterborough area, The Water Front is showing at 5:30 p.m. today (July 14) as part of the exhibit, “Water: Mystery & Plight” at the Sharon Arts Downtown Galleries. (Check out Christine Destrempes project.) The Harris Center for Conservation Education cosponsors the screening at the Peterborough Community Theatre, 6 School St., followed by a discussion and reception at the gallery.

This is from their press release:

“The movie The Water Front is a documentary about Highland Park, Michigan and what happened to its citizens when the city government decided their water plant was the city’s only positive financial asset. The city council marketed the water as a commodity to solve the city’s financial woes.  Residents, mainly poor and black, saw soaring water bills and lost control of their own water, a basic human need.  The Highland Park situation is a microcosm of many other cities, states and countries, and readily available, potable water is becoming rare.”
