WHYY Airs First Of 8 Stories From The Streams Starting January 7

In a thought-provoking and informative series from WHYY TV12, viewers can see how a team of scientists, educators, and private citizens are working every day to maintain the quality of the water that sustains 15 million people living in the Delaware River Watershed.
In every episode, Stories From the Streams will follow these remarkable and passionate people on farms, in science labs, and along the rivers and streams that eventually lead to the Delaware Bay.
Tune in starting Monday, January 7 to follow Chester County farmer Jamie Hicks, SUEZ Water Delaware, a Philadelphia Eagle, The Nature Conservancy, Stroud Water Research Center, and more into the field to see firsthand how state-of-the-art science and pure determination are helping to restore and protect our most valuable and finite natural resource: fresh water.
Each 2 ½ minute episode will broadcast for two weeks: every night at 10:58 p.m., Wednesdays at 7:58 p.m., and during an assortment of other primetime breaks. The episodes will also air on WHYY’s pledge channel, Y2, at varying times.
Extended episodes can be found on the WHYY website and will launch on January 14.
Stories From the Streams includes eight episodes:
-- Wonders of the Watershed: Discover nature’s perfect way of insuring that rainwater sustains the planet.
-- Salty Streams: Road salt keeps travelers safe in winter but can pose a serious threat to nearby streams.
-- Back to Our Roots: Planting trees along a stream can filter out pollutants and dramatically improve water quality.
-- Saving Soil, Saving Streams: Farmers and scientists work together to maintain the health of soil and streams.
-- Techno Geeks: With the help of new technology, citizen scientists can monitor the health of local streams.
