Hollywood fiction sidesteps the facts
The big screen often fails to show the bigger picture.
Dark Waters is no exception. This film – backed by a well-financed network of activists, investors, and trial attorneys – ignores the truth in a bid to make money and boost political special-interest groups. In a thinly veiled ploy to sell tickets and score political points, Dark Waters and its backers misrepresent our way of life in the Ohio River Valley.
We’re here to set the record straight.
Manufacturing powers the Ohio River Valley. Across Ohio, manufacturing is responsible for nearly one-fifth of the state’s Gross Domestic Product. As Ohio’s largest industry, manufacturing contributes to our outstanding quality of life.
