Drinking Water: Quenching the Public Thirst (60-minute DVD)

Many Californians don’t realize that when they turn on the faucet, the water that flows out could come from a source close to home or one hundreds of miles away. Most people take their water for granted; not thinking about the elaborate systems and testing that go into delivering clean, plentiful water to households throughout the state. Where drinking water comes from, how it’s treated, and what people can do to protect its quality are highlighted in this 2007 PBS documentary narrated by actress Wendie Malick. 

This DVD features closed captioning in Spanish and English. Includes a 12-page viewer’s guide (in English) with background information, historic timeline and a teacher’s lesson. DVD. The viewer’s guide also is available free without DVD purchase. Contact the Foundation, 916-444-6
