>and 11:30 pm Eastern Standard Time (EST).
>Additional showings are set for and Saturday,
>June 26th-in-8:30 and 11:30 pm EST.
>After the Storm shows the connection between weather and watersheds and
>the importance of watershed protection. The program reminds viewers
>that a finite amount of fresh water exists on the planet, and that
>everyone needs to take steps to protect water resources. Over the last
>thirty years, we have done a good job in controlling pollution from
>point sources -- factories and sewage treatment plants -- but the
>remaining pollution sources are more difficult to regulate. When it
>rains or when snow melts, pollutants from city streets, suburban lawns,
>and farms runs off into our nationb$s streams, lakes, wetlands and
>coastal waters.
>The show highlights three case studies -- Santa Monica Bay, the
>Mississippi River Basin/Gulf of Mexico, and New York City -- where
>polluted runoff threatens watersheds highly valued for recreation,
>commercial fisheries and navigation, and drinking water. Key
>scientists, water quality experts, and citizens involved in local and
>national watershed protection efforts provide insight into the problems
>as well as solutions to water quality crisis.
