Excellent! Must see for all. Powerful and even more relevant today, especially after the disgrace with the contamination of the water supply in Flint, Michigan. Never back down, never give up. Speak truth to power. This is what we must take away from this documentary.

If you drink water—see IN OUR WATER now—for water is the lifeblood that sustains all inhabitants on our planet. That filmmaker Meg Switzgable had the foresight required to capture this deeply affecting, hair-raising story on film is a testament to her prescience. Spread the word.

Amazing storytelling! Déjà vu 1982! IN OUR WATER reminds us that denying our environmental responsibility now (relaxing EPA regulations) will only increase future clean up costs. Our grandchildren may ask why we didn't make it more expensive to pollute.
