The impact of bottled water in Maine

In late May, the Lamoine, Maine, Conservation Commission, the Bar Harbor Conservation Commission, the Union River Watershed Coalition, and Food & Water Watch, sponsored a showing of the documentary film "Tapped" and a panel discussion on bottled water and its impacts. You can listen to excerpts from the panel discussion and question and answer session at the Alliance's Defending Water in Maine website, featuring Rep. Jim Schatz of Blue Hill; Emily Posner, Coordinator for Defending Water for Life in Maine; Daphne Loring, Coordinator at the Maine Fair Trade Campaign; and Willem Brutsaert, an Environmental Engineer Professor at the University of Maine, and expert in groundwater and surface water hydrology. The discussion was recorded by Meredith DeFrancesco, and edited by Amy Browne.
