Pure Clean Water is a fascinating documentary film which examines the critical issues surrounding chalk streams, water availability and the growth of Greater Cambridge. This is an issue that is very much “on our doorstep”, with new build housing in Sawston creating an even greater demand for water, the supply of which is already impacting the health of the river Granta less than a mile away.
Pumping from underground chalk aquifers brings us potable water at great
convenience, but in the process springs are drying up and precious chalk streams are disappearing.
Water companies, regulators, businesses, land owners, consumers and government have overseen a developing groundwater emergency. Can these groups come together to ensure that Cambridge has a reliable water supply without further damaging the environment?
Resolving this issue is not easy and will require each of us to pay much more attention to water.
The film will be screened at the Marven Centre at Sawston Village College on Thursday 1st February, as part of the Sawston Cinema programme.
Tickets are on sale now through Ticketsource.
The film’s director, Tony Eva, will be present to answer your questions after the screening.
