Please join the Friends of Ten Mile Creek, the Sierra Club and the Potomac Riverkeeper Network for a special screening of this important documentary.
"What Lies Upstream premiered on PBS’s Independent Lens series on April 16, as a prelude to Earth Day, 2018. Produced by investigative journalist Cullen Hoback, the documentary tells incredible stories of how a vast array of toxic chemicals got into the drinking water of thousands of people in West Virginia, how the drinking water in Flint, Michigan became contaminated with lead, and how the disposal of wastewater residuals such as biosolids on agricultural land is introducing thousands of chemicals into our water supply through run-off. It shines a light into how money, governmental negligence, regulatory failures, bureaucratic malpractice, general scientific illiteracy, and industry promotion of “fake science,” shape outcomes that harm the environment and threaten human health." The Friends of Ten Mile Creek and the Sierra Club join with the Potomac Riverkeeper Network to bring you this special educational evening, and ponder the "What if's"....
Light refreshments will be available. This evening is family friendly.
