Drinking water comes out of your faucet — whenever you want it, however much you want, and perfectly safe to drink. Actually, let’s back up. In the 1940s, the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service produced an information film starring the character "Junior Raindrop." In the 10-minute film, dated by the style of its animation and narration, we watch Junior Raindrop’s danger-fraught journey from the headwaters to the ocean.

What is most instructive in viewing the cartoon over 50 years later is that most of the problems plaguing public water supplies today were clearly identified and explained back then, albeit simplistically.

This provides a broad overview of the current ecological, political and social status of water issues in the United States.
