Nearly 40% of Madison-area residents don't know where storm water ends up, and how it affects the quality of the lakes, rivers and streams. MAMSWaP produced this video, which features beautiful photography of area waters, as well as interviews with residents, scientists, and conservationists who are all doing their part in regard to storm water, and how everyone can help. MAMSWaP is a consortium of 17 central Dane County municipalities, Dane County and UW Madison. The DVD will be available to schools, groups and residents.
