Water Wars

An article on the effects of privatization of water services here.

Academy award nominated director Josh Fox was arrested for attempting to film a public Congressional hearing that addresses the EPA's 3 year long investigation into the effects of fracking on groundwater contamination in Wyoming. He was interviewed immediately after on Democracy Now. The DN interview also talks with a Wyoming resident now suffering the effects. Of course the industry denies fracking has anything to do with the problems. And yet they felt it necessary to pass through legislation in 2004 that exempts fracking from the Safe Water Drinking Act.

Finally a full film on the subject of water control here.
