Each of us is connected to rivers in our everyday lives. Most of the six million people living in the Potomac River watershed do not realize that their drinking water comes from the Potomac. This film follows the flow of the Potomac water from its origin, into our homes and businesses and back into the river. We become aware of the need to protect this essential resource and its connection to our wellbeing and that of future generations.

Directed by Peggy Fleming. Produced and written by Sean Furmage.
