Need Something To Do Wednesday?



In the 21st century, water is poised to become the new oil. As the polar ice caps melt and winter snowpacks in the mountains continue to disappoint, this most precious resource—literally the wellspring of life on Earth—will need to be managed, measured and engineered to suit the needs of an ever-expanding human population.

Watershed, a film which will be screened by the Idaho chapter of the American Water Resource Association today at 6 p.m. at The Flicks, wrestles with a tiny but poignant facet of the water problem.

The film describes threats to the Colorado River, once one of America's wildest, offering solutions for this heavily engineered, diverted and dammed waterway and the 30 million people it serves. Tickets are $10.
