[PAST EVENT] Troubled Water: Voices from Bath
Troubled Water: Voices from Bath uses fine photography, audio interviews and film to explore the personal and environmental issues of Dominion?s proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline in Bath County, VA.
Seeking to illuminate how the proposed Atlantic Coast natural gas pipeline affects those living closest to it, professional photographer Lee Brauer, a recent Bath County resident, partnered with Barbara Adams, a member of Interfaith Climate Justice in Richmond, VA, and Julian McBain and Sam Wright, student environmental activists at Virginia Commonwealth University, to create Troubled Water: Voices from Bath.
While proponents insist these projects are necessary and universally beneficial, multiple studies have refuted this. Bath County residents overwhelmingly are united against the ACP and have joined others in the state sharing the same perspective. Troubled Water: Voices from Bath uses a multi-media approach ? exquisite photos, audio stories and a moving documentary-style video ? to share stories of Bath residents, their history and relationship with the land and dreams for it. This creative venture highlights those with a deep understanding of the county?s unique environment ? karst mountain topography and hydrology; scenic mountain roads, bridges and forests threatened by the need to transport large, heavy equipment, and unparalleled pristine springs, streams and rivers ? of the Bath County region and the heartland of Virginia.
