"Clearing the Water" tells the story of a group of citizens taking action to clean up New Hampshire's Lake Winnisquam back in the early 1970s.  Their actions led to the construction of a major waste water treatment plant in Franklin that serves 10 communities in the Lakes Region.  The Clean Waters Association then went on to other issues that keep New Hampshire Lakes clear and inviting. 

Many of the people involved and instrumental in the LRCWA were interviewed for this documentary, including William Ruckleshaus, first administrator of the federal Environmental Protection Agency.   The EPA made one of its first grants to move along the work of the Clean Water Association.  They also presented the Association with the first EPA Environmental Protection Award in 1975.

This is the story of citizen action and the importance of protecting the environment.  The Lakes Region Clean Waters Association provided leadership to the entire country in the very early days of the environmental movement.

This fifty minute documentary was produced by John Gfroerer and Accompany Video Production of Concord, NH.
