Watch the trailer for "Water Blues, Green Solutions"
Water is a limited resource, essential for life. Just as we recognize the value of water, it is important to recognize the value of natural systems to store and maintain clean, fresh water and to sustain biodiversity and wildlife.
Water Blues, Green Solutions is a Penn State Public Media initiative that combines the power of video, radio and outreach educational resources to encourage education and awareness of “green infrastructure” and the use of environmentally friendly techniques to tackle the most pressing water infrastructure challenges in the United States. USGBC is excited to be a proud collaborator, helping to elevate water literacy and empower water advocates in communities across the country.
The project team has recently released an interactive trailer narrated by Majora Carter, internationally renowned urban revitalization strategy consultant and Peabody Award winning broadcaster (and on our Board of Directors!). You'll get the opportunity to select stories that explore the issues most meaningful and relevant to you and your community.

This is just a preview for the whole Water Blues, Green Solutions documentary that tells the story of planners, developers, local governments and engaged residents in cities like Philadelphia, Portland, San Antonio and New York as they work to find sustainable ways to manage water, stormwater and wastewater. The full documentary will be released nationally on public television stations in early 2014.
