Over Troubled Water Premiere in Fresno
Fresno branch of Women's International League For Peace & Freedom, in collaboration with Restore the Delta, Revive the San Joaquin, and the Sustainable Action Club of Fresno City College, will sponsor the showing of a new documentary, Over Troubled Waters, October 4, 7 PM in the auditorium of the Old Administration building at Fresno City College. The screening is free; to register go to www.restorethedelta.org. With the possibility of the building of peripheral tunnels carrying irrigation water around the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, at a cost to the taxpayer of about 30 billion dollars, the Delta, the largest estuary on the west coast of the Americas, will be devastated.
The film, narrated by Ed Begley, Jr., tells the story of the battle being fought by the people of the Delta to protect the region they love and to encourage saner water policies for all the people of California. The film also tells about the powerful forces arrayed against the Delta and the history of promises broken by the government.Over Troubled Waters shows that there are common-sense, affordable solutions that can lead to true water security for California in the 21st century. The documentary is co-sponsored by the Tehipite Chapter of the Sierra Club.
