Record-breaking droughts, devastating  floods, and polluted water systems have  galvanized ordinary citizens, governments, and communities large and small into looking to nature for solutions to our water crisis. Will their fledgling efforts be too little too late, or are we on the path to creating a sustainable future?

The public service media project Water Blues Green Solutions is integrated initiative built around a nationally distributed public television documentary telling evidence based stories of visionary leaders who are adopting green solutions for our water blues. Produced by Penn State Public Media, this initiative is designed to promote public education and awareness of “green infrastructure” and how natural processes can interface with and complement existing gray or manmade infrastructure. Check out Water Blues Green Solutions and get inspired to help find specific strategies for addressing water issues in your hometown.
