Water and the Human Spirit - Program Two

Farmers and communities solving their own water problems.

A printer-friendly version of this page 30 minutes
Directed by Robert Peace and David Calderisi
Produced by EIA Environmental

This second program in the two-part series documents shining examples of community cooperation that have resulted in successful solutions to local water problems.

The community of Salmon Arm, BC, was inspired by Mary Thomas, a Shuswap elder, to clean up their river; and in Ontario there's a model Children's Groundwater Festival.

One of the main contributors to deteriorating river conditions is agriculture - from chemical run-off and livestock waste, to trampled banks that cause erosion. But some farmers have found that taking conservation measures has actually made their farms more profitable.

As producer Robert Peace says, "The best way to preserve our waterways is to claim the resource as our own and to take charge of it."
