Water Rights Come Under Scutiny
Water rights in Michigan come under scrutiny from unique perspectives Thursday, March 17, at 7:30 p.m. in Dunning Memorial Chapel on the Alma College campus.
James Olson, attorney of environmental law representing Michigan Citizens for Water Conservation, and 1971 Alma College graduate Michael Delp, faculty member at Interlochen Arts Academy and author of The Last Good Water, Prose and Poetry 1988-2005, approach the subject from legal and poetic aspects. “Our Water: Policy, Poetry, & Public Trust” hosted by Students United for Nature (SUN) spotlights Michigan water rights and the current controversy over Ice Mountain water bottling operations in Michigan using business, legal, scientific and poetic viewpoints.
SUN's symposium is designed to increase awareness about current water issues, to gain a better understanding of the impact of current water decisions on the future, and to reflect on our State's natural endowments.
