The Enterprise Bourne
April 8, 2022
The Cape Cod Groundwater Guardians, a small group of professionals serving with Barnstable County, has created an educational podcast called “One Drop Leads to Another,” which can be found on several streaming services, as a platform to discuss current public concerns about water resources.
“As water quality continues to be a concern on Cape Cod, with failing septic systems and excess lawn fertilizers creating algal blooms and unsafe conditions, it is more critical than ever before that Cape Codders become aware of how to be stewards of their water,” the group said in a press release. “If Cape Cod is to continue to be a beautiful place to live and visit, residents and vacationers need to understand the importance of the sole-source aquifer on Cape Cod, which provides approximately 85 percent of Cape Cod’s water supplies to the region.”
The podcast has aired eight preliminary episodes to date, including episodes about mosquito control and shellfishing. Future episodes will introduce topics ranging from plastic pollution to chocolate production. Guests will have an opportunity to discuss professional aspects of water resources and their personal reflections. The podcast can be found on Spotify and Apple Podcasts. Episodes will air weekly on Monday mornings.
