Short Documentary Highlights How Individuals Impact Aquatic Environments

County Executive Johnny Olszewski donned rubber knee boots and waded into Deep Run at Meadowood Park with County natural resource specialists to give the public a rare glimpse of what lies below the water, and what it reveals about the health of this Lutherville-area stream.

His adventure is captured in a short documentary entitled “Watershed Moments—Keepers of the Stream.” The six-minute video features beautiful underwater and aerial drone footage of local streams and an engaging overview of the County’s water quality monitoring techniques. It presents practical commentary on how all of our actions on land affect the delicate balance of life in our waterways.

“It’s fascinating how our environmental scientists sample and identify tiny aquatic creatures to determine the levels of pollutants in our streams and use this data to drive targeted watershed restoration and outreach,” Olszewski said.
