On Tuesday, May 18, at the Redstone Church at 7 p.m.,there will be a free showing of the movie Tapped.Stephanie Soechtig’s debut feature is an unflinching examination of the big business of bottled water. Tapped the Movie exposes the economic, social, and environmental realities of bottled water. There’s more to your bottled water than you might think. From the producers of Who Killed the Electric Car and I.O.U.S.A., this documentary is a behind-the-scenes look into the unregulated and unseen world of an industry that aims to privatize and sell back the one resource that should never become a commodity: our water. This is a powerful portrait of the bottled water industry. However, this is not just a national or global issue. Bottled water is threatening the health of our local rivers and streams. Plans are underway to mine water in the Arkansas River valley and bottle it in Denver. Millions of gallons of replacement water for this project would come from the Roaring Fork Valley, delivered through transmountain diversions under the Continental Divide.
