WVIA Film WaterWise Series On Preserving PA Watersheds Begins To Air
The WVIA-TV Original Documentary Film Series, "WaterWise" produced in partnership with The Foundation for Pennsylvania Watersheds, takes viewers to some of Pennsylvania's most beautiful natural environments, to see how common people are combating the consequences of freshwater pollution.

Encore presentations of part 1 will be broadcast on October 17 at 8 p.m., October 20 at 3 p.m., November 18 at 7 p.m., November 21 at 8 p.m., and November 24 at 3 p.m. on WVIA-TV.

More than 12 million people call Pennsylvania home. Every day, without relent; knowingly or without awareness, each resident of the state in some way uses 157 gallons of freshwater. It's obvious that Pennsylvania's freshwater resources are vital to the state's economy and quality of life.
Fortunately for the Keystone State, it has the most miles of streams and rivers of any state in contiguous America, but Pennsylvania's population continues to grow, which inevitably exacerbates existing pollution and expands the potential for such degradation.
With so much freshwater sources at risk, arguably there is no greater call to public activism than freshwater awareness.
Each part of "WaterWise" chronicles 6 to 8 stories of efforts by inspiring volunteer watershed groups throughout Pennsylvania who are employing leading-edge science to preserve, protect and restore local freshwater sources.
WVIA Public Media is a catalyst, convener and educator, using media, partnerships, powerful ideas and programs to improve lives and advance the best attributes of an enlightened society.
