Contents Notes
The story of essential infrastructure systems: water, wastewater, and stormwater. These systems provide a critical public health function and are essential for economic development and growth. Largely out of sight and out of mind, these aging systems have not been maintained, and some estimates suggest this is the single largest public works endeavor in our nation's history. Locations featured in the documentary include Atlanta, Boston, Herminie (Pennsylvania), Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, New York City, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Washington, D.C. Three systems : drinking water, wastewater, storm water -- The national problem -- The value of water -- The funding gap -- New York City : system complexity & watershed protection -- Federal regulations -- Pittsburgh : watershed politics -- Herminie, PA : a small-town struggle -- Los Angeles : protecting the beaches -- Las Vegas : sustaining water resources -- Asset management -- Finding the funds -- Atlanta : leadership drives change.
