Ashland: Doc Film & Discussion Series presents “Last Call at the Oasis”

November 14, 2013

The Ashland Documentary Film & Discussion Series and Transition Ashland will the present Last Call at the Oasis Nov. 14, from 7 – 9 p.m., in the Ashland Public Library Community Room, 66 Front St., Ashland. Admission is free, and viewers are invited to stay for discussion.

Through testimony of experts and special guest Erin Brockovich, Last Call at the Oasis warns that drinking water supplies will run shortly out unless humans quickly change. The film examines the drivers of water shortage: agriculture, development, climate change and waste. As if running out is not enough, biologist Tyrone Hayes is concerned about the contamination of water with pesticides, especially atrazine.

Special guest participants are Wayne Bates, PhD, PE, a specialist in water and wastewater treatment technologies and member of the Ashland Sustainability Committee, and Roy Correira, Ashland's Water/Sewer General Foreman; 10 years with the Ashland DPW and 20 years in the water field.

The Documentary Film & Discussion Series meets every 2nd Thursday and 4th Tuesday of the month for an in-depth look at important topics of our day. The moderated discussions are often lively and thought provoking. All points of view are welcomed. For more information, call the library at 508-881-0134 or visit www.friendsoftheapl.com.
