Watershed Keeper

Watershed Keeper

Gold Apple Award -NEMN Festival
"Recommended. This program is uncommonly good. Gale Ciardi is a self-described "jack of all trades" whose work renders her part scientist, part enforcement officer and part firefighter. She is a fourth generation protector of watersheds who loves her job despite many unfortunate encounters with sexism." -EMRO Review
"Recommended. A strong, lush and forceful documentary." -Akira Lippit, Univ. of CA/Irvine
The importance of clean, safe to drink, water is necessary for all living things, thus one of the most valued environmental resources for humans is our watersheds. So who's watching our watersheds? Fortunately, there are trained watershed keepers dedicated to that task. This classic documentary chronicles a typical day of work for Gayle Ciardi, who was the first woman watershed keeper for the San Francisco Water Department. More than a profile of her vocation, this program strives to inspire people to learn more about watersheds, restoration, and water resource management, which are so vital to our overall well being. Produced by Sandra Lee Sheffield. 04/10DE JSCA 15 min.
