Abstract: 

Across the world people live, work and play in watersheds. This video, co-produced by The Weather Channel (TWC) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), takes a look at what a watershed is and how we play a role in the nation's biggest water quality problem -- polluted runoff -- and solutions to this problem.

After the Storm shows the connection between weather and watersheds and the importance of watershed protection. We all live in a watershed and we all have an impact on our environment.

The show highlights three case studies-Santa Monica Bay, the Mississippi River Basin/Gulf of Mexico, and New York City- where polluted runoff threatens watersheds highly valued for recreation, commercial fisheries and navigation, and drinking water. Key scientists and water quality experts, and citizens involved in local and national watershed protection efforts provide insight into the problems as well as solutions to today's water quality challenges.

EPA now has full rights to the program and encourages cable TV stations, teachers and others to air the program. The program continues to be a very popular item used by teachers at all levels and by cable TV stations to help educate citizens about stormwater management.
