BOZEMAN -- An internationally-recognized expert in drinking water and health will speak Thursday, Sept. 25, at Montana State University.

Scientist and author Robert D. Morris of Seattle will discuss "Blue Death: Disease, Disaster and the Water We Drink" at 9 a.m. in the combined ballrooms of the Strand Union Building. The talk is free and open to the public.

Morris' work has been featured on Dateline NBC and the British Broadcasting Corp., in the New York Times and The Times of London. His recent book, "The Blue Death," exposes myths about drinking water and disease transmission through public water systems.
