HARRISBURG—Rep. Todd Stephens (R-Montgomery) is inviting residents to attend a free screening of a movie about a lawyer fighting a corporation that polluted drinking water.

Based on a true story, “Dark Waters” chronicles an attorney who sues DuPont for dumping PFAS – the same chemicals polluting local drinking water supplies - into West Virginia’s water.

“This is a powerful story and a stark reminder that the battle for clean water takes vigilance and dedication,” Stephens said. “It echoes many of the challenges we’ve faced while fighting to hold the federal government responsible for dumping PFAS in our drinking water.”

The free screening will take place Sunday, March 15, at 2 p.m., at Hatboro Horsham High School, 899 Horsham Road in Horsham. Rep. Stephens will participate in a brief panel discussion following the movie.

The event is co-sponsored by the Buxmont Coalition for Safer Water, the Sierra Club of Pennsylvania, Conservation Voters of PA and Clean Water Action.

Call 215-368-5165 with any questions.
