"Flow" Screening at Loyola

Who Owns Your Water?

Loyola's Center for Urban Environmental Research and Policy (CUERP) and the University Libraries will kick off an environmental film series with the documentary "Flow," which examines the question "Who owns the water?" when it comes to the privatization of water by companies extracting ground water to bottle and sell.

"Flow" will be shown on October 22 at 6:30 p.m. in Damen Hall's Finnegan Auditorium, followed by a question and answer period with Dr. Mark Luttenton, Professor of Aquatic Ecology and Water Rights Expert from Grand Valley State University, Michigan. Dr. Luttenton has served as an expert witness in a case of the State of Michigan vs. Nestle (owners of Ice Mountain bottled water) for the past nine years, and he will discuss the issue with participants.

Free popcorn and licorice will be served. Bring your own drink (not bottled water, though). For more information, e-mail
