Ripple Effect

Nearly everything we rely on requires a tremendous amount of water, but most of it we never even see. From wastewater treatment to power generation and agriculture, Ripple Effect explores how and where our water is used. We explain why living in an industrialized society affects our global water supply, as well as the impact technology and sound policy, can play in helping make meaningful changes. Set just outside of Philadelphia, this four-part miniseries features interviews with a diverse group of subject matter experts and people on the ground who are making a positive difference in water conservation and reuse around the world.
