After the Storm: Pollution in the Potomac
Won a Telly Silver Award for the General TV Division, Aired on Maryland Public TV, Official Selection of the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital / Whenever it rains in Washington, D.C., raw sewage spills into the Potomac River because of the city’s outdated sewer system. These Combined Sewer Overflows release pollutants like fecal coliform bacteria and e. coli into the waterway sickening animals, fish, and humans, and depleting the oxygen levels causing harmful algal blooms. “After the Storm: Pollution in the Potomac” investigates the all-too-common problem of wastewater overflows, and reveals a remarkable network of underground tunnels being constructed below the nation’s capital to try to stem the toxic tide that threatens the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay.
