Dates and Times

Join the Tampa Bay Sierra Club, and 1000 Friends of Florida for a special screening of the new documentary, Troubled Waters: Connections and Consequences, a timely and important film discussing the perils facing Florida's drinking water.

Connected through an endless series of canals, rivers, marshes, springs, and lakes, water can be found all throughout Florida. The state’s waterways serve as a lifeline for Floridians. The Floridan Aquifer, one of the largest freshwater sources in the world, is a major source of drinking water in north and central Florida. And while the documentary, produced in part by St. Johns Riverkeeper, examines the current condition of the St. Johns River, it provides insight into the ongoing battle between conservationists and the water crisis throughout the state.

The film is free and open to the public, and doors open at 6:45pm.

Following the screening, there will be an panel discussion and audience Q&A with:
  • Frank Jackalone, Sierra Club's Florida Chapter Director
  • Ryan Smart, President of 1000 Friends of Florida
  • Dr. Richard Garrity, Former Director of the Hillsborough County Environmental Protection Commission
  • Dr. Tom Crisman, USF Professor of Integrative Biology
  • Hillsborough County Commissioner Pat Kemp
