Liquid Assets: The Story of Our Water

Hello,

We’re sending out this reminder about the Liquid Assets: The Story of Our Water Infrastructure program, and do appreciate your sharing the word!

For Immediate Release: December 30, 2008

Water, precious water…How are we taking care of our nation’s water systems?

KRCB Television 22 presents Liquid Assets: The Story of Our Water
Infrastructure on Sunday, January 11th 2009 at 10:30 pm    

This ninety-minute documentary tells the story of essential infrastructure systems: water, wastewater, and stormwater. These systems – some in the ground for more than 150 years – provide a critical public health function and are essential for economic development and growth. Largely out of sight and out of mind, these aging systems have not been maintained, and some estimates suggest this is the single largest public works endeavor in our nation’s history. 

Hundreds of billions of dollars are required to restore America’s
infrastructure. This section will track how cities and regions are
confronting infrastructure rehabilitation, both economically and
politically.

“The goal of this public service media project is to stimulate community discussion and bring this issue into the public consciousness using television as a catalyst,” said executive producer of the documentary, Tom Keiter. “We want ‘Liquid Assets’ to be more than just a broadcast.”

Exploring the history, engineering challenges, and political and economic realities in urban and rural locations, the documentary provides an understanding of the hidden assets that support our way of life. 

KRCB Public Television broadcasts from studios in Rohnert Park,
California, on Channel 22 and is seen over the air in Sonoma, Marin, Napa and parts of Lake and Mendocino counties. KRCB is also seen on Channel 22 via Comcast Cable and Dish and DirecTV satellite services across the entire San Francisco Bay Area.
