Saving Our Waters, is comprised of three thought-provoking short documentaries covering steps toward keeping our waterways clean; the impacts of phosphorus and other contaminants; and using the science behind the issues to derive solutions that have positive impact on our communities. Featuring interviews with scientists, citizens, farmers, business owners, and dozens of other stakeholders, the series creates a comprehensive look at the health of the entire watershed of the lake, which encompasses approximately 40% of the state. Saving Our Waters aims to examine the state of the Lake Champlain Basin today with an eye toward practical solutions to keeping Vermont’s waterways clean in an age of extreme weather events.

Produced by Vermont PBS together with independent producers Fran Stoddard and Vince Franke. Both have vast experience with producing content focused on raising cultural and environmental awareness. Read press release.
