Water: Its Ecological, Civic, and Cultural Meanings

This roundtable explores the relationship between culture, ecology
and community action and its impact on local watersheds in the
Connecticut River area of Holyoke and South Hadley. Why does water matter for the sustainability and vitality of a community? What are the local meanings of water in the Connecticut River Valley? How does access to water and commercial water use affect local communities such as Holyoke? What does water mean to the Mount Holyoke College community? Mount Holyoke students examine the intersection of privatized water supplies such as bottled water, municipal water sources, and natural water sites on campus?
