'Seeking Water From the Sun' Documentary on KUAT

"Seeking Water From The Sun," a special 30-minute documentary by Arizona Public Media, will broadcast at 6 p.m. April 22, Earth Day, on KUAT Channel 6.

This documentary special explores a scientific effort undertaken by University of Arizona scientists and the Bureau of Reclamation to resolve a dilemma of basic human need – clean water. It is a human story of the drama of science and the reality of life for the Navajo Nation, depicting the precious nature with which water is conserved and respected by Navajo families, many of whom go through great lengths to get drinking water in order to remain on the lands of their choosing. This story follows the scientists' trials and tribulations as they design and build a solar-powered water distillation prototype, the first step in a plan to purify ground water for easier access to the Navajo people and their livestock.

April 22, 2012   6 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
