GLIN==> New Great Lakes movie



New Great Lakes movie!

Water is becoming a limited commodity throughout the world, including the Great Lakes region. In order to secure the future of our freshwater resources, public participation in decisions surrounding water use and protection is vital. The goal of this movie is to provide an overview of the concepts of surface and groundwater watersheds and the concept of water diversions. The movie relates these issues to the Great Lakes Compact Agreement and presents ideas on how individuals can make an impact on water use and the policies surrounding water protections.



This project is a collaboration between the scientist Rebecca Klaper and the filmmaker Matt Radcliff. Funding was provided by the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program, UWM Great Lakes WATER Institute and Paignton Pictures.



The film is currently playing at Discovery World in Milwaukee through May on Saturdays and Sundays at 11:30 am CDT. Wider distribution is anticipated. Contact Rebecca Klaper at rklaper@uwm.edu with any questions.
