Over Troubled Waters Coming to Discovery Bay

 

If you have not seen Over Troubled Waters yet, there is another showing this Friday in Discovery Bay at the Excelsior Performing Arts Center At 7:00 pm.

In this visually rich documentary, Ed Begley  Jr. narrates the story of how the people of the Delta are fighting to protect the region they love and to encourage saner, sustainable water policies for all the people of California.

“This is our chance to tell the real Delta story,” said Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, executive director of Restore the Delta, which produced the documentary. “This film reveals how powerful forces are using fear of flooding and earthquakes to make a case for transforming a unique, beautiful, productive region into a permanent way station for water going somewhere else. They are trying to shore up an outdated water system with a massive, multi-billion dollar water transfer project that Californians will be paying for decades.”
