After the Storm: Pollution in the Potomac River
2020 | US | 27minsDocumentary Short
Whenever it rains in Washington, D.C., raw sewage spills into the Potomac River because of the city’s outdated sewer system. These Combined Sewer Overflows release pollutants like fecal coliform bacteria and e. coli into the waterway, potentially sickening animals, fish, and humans, and depleting the oxygen levels causing harmful algal blooms. After the Storm investigates the all-too-common problem of wastewater overflows, and reveals a remarkable network of underground tunnels being constructed below the nation’s capital to try to stem the toxic tide that threatens the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay.

Growing up, Christine Hill saw the outdoors as a place that was full of bugs and too much worry. But after falling in love with climbing and discovering a sense of peace through summer camp, she decided this was something worth protecting. Now splitting her time between Washington, DC and Haines, AK, Chris is an environmental lobbyist and angler who comes alive and spreads joy while out on the river. Maybe a bit of competition too if the odds are right.
