COMPTON — Join Concerned Citizens of Compton and others for a community discussion, Sept. 9, about water affordability concerns and a free screening of the critically acclaimed documentary, “Water & Power: A California Heist.”

The discussion and film screening will occur from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Douglas F. Dollarhide Community Center, 301 N. Tamarind Ave.

According to Food & Water Watch, the discussion will focus on wealthy water barons who control California’s water, “who now want to stick Compton and SoCal residents with the newest heist — a wasteful new $17-$50 billion tunnel project to benefit corporate agriculture.”

The Compton City Council will vote on this water bill and property tax increase via their appointed seat on the Metropolitan Water District Board of Directors in late September.
