TROUBLED WATERS: A MISSISSIPPI RIVER STORY
Head out to the IC Public Library next Wednesday in Meeting Room A from 7-9:00 p.m. for a free screening of TROUBLED WATERS: A MISSISSIPPI RIVER STORY. The American Midwest boasts some of the world's most productive farmland, but this bounty comes with a price. Excess nitrogen and phosphorous, fertilizers essential to the growth of plants, are contaminating the nation's rivers, lakes and aquifers at the same time as precious soils wash away. This documentary tells the story of changes on the land and the initiatives people are taking to ensure a more sustainable food production system. Co-sponsored by ECO Iowa City.
