Water stewardship videos shown in Swain

Written by 

Four short videos that are part of a Watershed Film Series titled “It’s Our Water” will be shown the evening of Nov. 15 in the fellowship hall of the Bryson City United Methodist Church.

The videos will cover issues from litter to bottled water, and the focus will be on drinking water in Bryson City and Sylva. The event will begin with a 6:30 p.m. social, followed by the 7-8:15 p.m. meeting.

“This is a good-news story nestled in challenging issues of river water that is marred by pockets of unsightly litter, polluted in some locations with bacteria, and too often — too muddy,” said Roger Clapp, director of the Watershed Association of the Tuckasegee River. 

The program will include brief presentations about tap water and offer everyone a taste test of variously sourced water. There will also be brief discussion of bacteria levels in Scott and Savannah creeks, streams which do not contribute to public water supplies.
