Troubled Water - release
Troubled Water examines the threats to public water systems and watersheds on Vancouver Island. Privatization, Public Private Partnerships (P3’s), privately owned community watersheds, vulnerable aquifers, ground water contamination and international trade agreements all threaten to further undermine the safety and security of public water systems, public ownership and the fundamental human right to access clean drinking water.
Troubled Water profiles the public drinking watersheds and aquifers in Victoria, Chemainus (Halalt), Cassidy, Nanaimo (Snuneymuxw), Parksville and Port Alberni. These different types of water sources and the various threats they face are representative of many other watersheds in North America and around the world. Examples of successes and what communities can strive for including the Blue Communities project are also highlighted.
The film was supported with a grant by Vancouver Island Water Watch Committee and CUPE 401.
