Chesapeake Bay Week 2020
After the Storm: Pollution in the Potomac
Whenever it rains in Washington, D.C., raw sewage spills into the Potomac River. 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. An outdated sewer system is to blame. “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. Produced by: American University Center for Environmental Filmmaking Maryland Public Television Executive Producer: John Paulson
