Butler University — September 24, 2015


Butler University’s Friesner Herbarium and Center for Urban Ecology, with funding partners Let’s Talk About Water Inc. and CUASHI (Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science Inc.), present a free screening of the film Water Under the City on Thursday, September 24, at 7:00 PM in the Butler University Pharmacy and Health Sciences Building, Room 156.

For more information, call 317-940-9413 or email Rebecca Dolan at rdolan@butler.edu.

The film, made by IUPUI students in 2011, explains why Indianapolis and other cities have combined sewer overflows (CSOs; infrastructure that diverts untreated sewage into local rivers and steams during high rainfall events), the hazards they present, and the major ongoing effort to deal with the issue.

A panel discussion with local water resource experts led by Julia Angstmann, Director of the Center for Urban Ecology, will follow the screening.
