Film: Keeping the Potomac, and discussion with Shenandoah Riverkeeper & Potomac Riverkeeper

Join us on February 10 in Frederick, Maryland for the showing of Frederick’s Best of Fest Student Award Winner film, Keeping the Potomac: The Politics of Water at the Weinberg Center for the Arts at 6:00 pm followed by a discussion with the student filmmakers, Shenandoah Riverkeeper Mark Frondorf and Potomac Riverkeeper Dean Naujoks.

The film, featuring Brent, Dean, and Mark, looks at efforts to stem agricultural nutrient pollution along the Shenandoah River in Virginia and West Virginia, a major tributary to the Potomac; a pipeline in Allegany County, Maryland that pumps effluent from a Westernport wastewater treatment plant into the upper Potomac River; and coal ash disposal ponds at Possum Point Power Plant in Dumfries, Virginia and their impact on the lower Potomac.
