Pennsylvania is famous for the beauty of its countryside -- the small towns, mountains and farmlands. Yet the land hides an unseen killer, polluted water, resulting from drainage from abandoned coal mines. There are 45,000 miles of streams and lakes in the state, and 2,800 miles are polluted. These aren't the big rivers around cities like Pittsburgh or Scranton. They are small steams and creeks running throughout the Commonwealth. "Water: An Endangered Resource," a Penn State Public Broadcasting production, looks at the problem, the dangers to wildlife, recreation and the economy and what is being done to clean it up. © 2006 WPSU. 57 min.
