DC Water’s Sequel to A Drop’s Life

Here’s DC Water’s video sequel to “A Drop’s Life”. The original animated video focused on the fate of a raindrop that found itself in the District’s combined sewer system.

The sequel picks up the story with new raindrop characters and a new twist—it describes green methods to keep that raindrop and its buddies out of the sewers altogether by using green infrastructure to absorb the rain before it ever makes its way to the sewer system. Green infrastructure includes curb bump-outs, rain gardens (also called bioretention) and rain barrels that capture rain water and store it for outdoor uses like gardening and car washing.

I like these videos from DC Water and hope you enjoy them too.
