Pollution Along the Rhine River

Throughout human history, water has played a dual role as a life-giving liquid and as a resource for waste disposal. Without careful management, these two roles can conflict, with potentially dangerous results. This video segment adapted from Race to Save the Planet documents the condition of the Rhine River and one of its tributaries, the Emscher, in 1990. It also details preliminary findings and efforts that led to what would become one of the great environmental success stories of the century.
