The Shape Of Our Water

Season 2, Episode 8 of 8

We all have the right to clean drinking water. Yet while some of us take this for granted, others struggle. Representatives from the NRDC (National Resources Defense Council) and the NAACP show us why this is such a challenge. We meet with residents of Uniontown, Alabama, a low-income community that received a massive amount of coal ash after a spill in Tennessee. Residents share their experiences with health issues, loss of property values, and striving to find clean water since the construction of a toxic waste landfill. And in Baltimore, Maryland, Mr. Trashwheel is not only cleaning up the inner harbor, but it is using googly eyes and social media to raise awareness about water pollution all over the world.
