|3092||WATER CRISIS, THE||WATER CRISIS, THE||1980||color||58 min||16mm|| (Nova series)
Although most Americans take water for granted, this film shows that water scarcity could become the next national issue. NOVA covers water problems from the Adirondack Mountains to the Mississippi River states to the West Coast. As it highlights troubles with acid rain, overdrafting of aquifers, drought, disinfecting methods that may cause cancer, toxic industrial waste, etc., NOVA asks, "Should we have a national water policy? Can we learn to recycle and conserve what water we have?"
