Diane Tweten of Citizens for Portland Water on privatization of water & challenging EPA LT2 rule

For over 100 years Portlanders have safely been drinking water from the Bull Run reservoir where it is treated organically and naturally, but in applying a "one-size fits all" rule the Environmental Protection Agency has mandated that the City cover its reservoirs and build filtration plants. The average Portland water bill could double in the next five years if the city complies.  Host Stephanie Potter will talk with Diane Tweten of Citizens for Portland Water about how this issue relates to the trend of corporate influences toward privatization of water, and how Citizens for Portland Water is attempting to challenge the EPA ruling.

The Armenian Genocide  – also known as the Armenian Holocaust, the Armenian Massacres and, by Armenians, as the Great Calamity – was the deliberate and systematic destruction (genocide) of the Armenian population of the Ottoman Empire during and just after World War I. It was characterized by the use of massacres, and the use of deportations involving forced marches under conditions designed to lead to the death of the deportees, with the total number of Armenian deaths generally held to have been between one and 1.5 million.
