About Saving Our Waters

Saving Our Waters, a three-part documentary on the health and vibrancy of the Lake Champlain basin, premieres online and on Vermont PBS Thursday, October 19 at 8 pm. Featuring interviews with scientists, citizens, farmers, business owners, and dozens of other stakeholders, the series creates a comprehensive look at the health of the entire watershed of the lake, which encompasses approximately 40% of the state. The result is three thought-provoking short documentaries covering steps toward keeping our waterways clean; the impacts of phosphorus and other contaminants; and using the science behind the issues to derive solutions that have a positiveimpact on our communities. Saving Our Watersaims to examine the state of the Lake Champlain Basin today with an eye toward practical solutions to keeping Vermonts waterways clean in an age of extreme weather events.


We all play a role in the rich history, economic vitality and recreational lifestyle that is tied to Lake Champlain, said Holly Groschner,Presidentand CEO of Vermont PBS. Saving Our Watersaims to educate Vermonters around the science behind water pollution and to support a dialogue around the ways in which we can all create the circumstances for cleaner waterways.


With that goal in mind, the series is complemented by multiple town hall meetings in some of the communities most affected by watershed issues. Vermont PBS will also air a panel discussion on the Lake Champlain basin that was pre-recorded in Montreal, one of many sources of water flowing into Lake Champlain and the pollutants associated with it.


Saving Our Waterswas made possible by major funding provided by Vermont EPSCoR. Additional funding was provided by Gardeners Supply and Hickok & Boardman. The documentaries will premiere on Vermont PBS on three consecutive Thursdays:
