The Philadelphia Water Department's  Marc Cammarata, Deputy Commissioner of the Department’s Planning and Environmental Services, and Kelly Anderson, the Watershed Protection Program Manager of the Department, will discuss the complexities of how the Philadelphia Water Department manages its water supply and works on environmental issues.  Also on this show:

  • News and Updates on Water Stories Locally, Nationally, and Globally: your host, Kay Wood, and your assistant producer/reporter, Linda Rosenwein, will discuss water issues that have surfaced since our last show on water (3/15), including the recently initiated “Philadelphia Inquirer’s” yearlong project, the Source on the Delaware Watershed and the city’s “Drinking Water: Master Plan Overview” (March 2019) as well as other national and global water issues.
