On Tuesday, Nov. 17, come see "FLOW", an award-winning documentary that focuses on the world water crisis and asks the key question: "Can anyone really own water?" The documentary will be shown at the W.H. Over Museum, 1110 Ratingen at 7 p.m.
Local people involved in Tuesday's presentation note that in South Dakota, it is likely that several industries, including refineries, coal companies, nuclear power plants, and ethanol plants may want to convert Missouri River water for their own use, and many out-of-state entities want to divert water in Missouri River reservoirs to new uses in their dry states.
Worldwide, the emergence of water cartels threaten to privatize dwindling supplies of fresh water. Beyond identifying the problem, FLOW also gives viewers a look at the people and institutions providing practical solutions to the water crisis and those developing new technologies, which are fast becoming blueprints for a successful global and economic turnaround.
