The 1998 film A Civil Action is based upon a true story that took place in the Mystic River Watershed. This legal thriller details the case surrounding the contamination of the Woburn City water supply. We will be joined by Jan Schlichtmann, the lawyer who stood up to corporate interests in order to protect a community's water supply. Hear about his experience and thoughts on environmental law and why individuals must remain vigilant.
