About the Event
Author, documentarian and environmental activist Stephen Hamm will host an in-person showing of his film about the Mill River, A River Speaks.
The film dives into the history of the Mill River with an unadorned, straight-forward perspective. The Mill River, which originates in Cheshire, was once a flourishing, healthy water body. Today the Mill River is impaired and generally unsuitable for use by fishermen and other recreational activities for much of its 12.6-mile length. It continues to serve as a supplementary source of drinking water for thousands of residents.
In addition to the film, the Coalition for a Sustainable Cheshire and its partners will discuss ongoing projects taking place along the length of the Mill River from Cheshire to Long Island Sound.
