The Dead Sea is dying, but not everybody is ready to let one of the planet’s great natural wonders go dry.
In a new episode of its hit science-based series NOVA, the slow decline in the sea’s level is examined along with the efforts to save the sea. Scientists, engineers and political leaders have devised a way to try and save the Dead Sea — construction of a large desalination plant.
If the plant works, it will connect the Dead Sea with the Red Sea. Success would not only save the Dead Sea but also play a crucial role in political tensions and water shortages in the Dead Sea region.
NOVA: Saving The Dead Sea is scheduled for release July 16 on DVD and Digital. It will retail for MSRP of $24.99, but can be pre-ordered now at a reduced price of $19.99 through PBS’ online store.
