Code Blue: Water in the Mountains| 32mins
Director: David Weintraub | Producer: David Weintraub
Focus Years: 2012 | Country: United States
Many people across the country travel to Western North Carolina to view the spectacular Blue Ridge Mountains, enjoy our mountain streams, family farms and more temperate climate. As pristine as things may look, the mountains are facing similar problems to the rest of the country and the world - our most precious resource, our water, is being overused, polluted and neglected by over-development and runoff that threatens our watersheds.
What few understand is how many businesses are connected to water from recreational boaters to fishers to camps to farmers and more. Code Blue documents the â€œgreenâ€ value of protecting our watersheds, from the ecosystems connected to our streams to the financial integrity clean and pristine waterways brings to our local economies. Not only do hundreds of thousands of people rely on clean water for drinking, but our way of life would drastically change should our source of water disappear or be significantly affected.
