We are proud to announce the release of our newest animation: The Story of Water: Who Controls the Way We Drink?
Created in collaboration with our partners at Corporate Accountability, The Story of Water chronicles the dangers of water privatization and highlights innovative solutions being adopted around the United States that keep water systems in public handshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04jTleV0gK0
It's no secret that our public water and sewer systems are in need of maintenance and repair. Our cities and water supplies are vulnerable and private corporations are taking advantage by offering false solutions.
When corporations take control of our water, they prioritize turning a profit instead of access to clean, safe, affordable drinking water that we all need to survive. Donít be surprised if you receive an unexpectedly high water bill: privatized systems often mean much higher utility costs for everyday people.
Fortunately, cities around the country are finding creative ways to keep their water systems out of corporate control.
We hope that this movie serves as a resource to foster a dialogue about who controls the water in your community and inspires you to get involved in local conversations about your water: it's so easy to take this precious resource for granted until it becomes unsafe, unaffordable, or shut-off entirely.

Thank you for watching!
