Brett: I have actually seen the documentary. It is called Sacramento: The River of Life and was narrated by the actor Peter Coyote. After reading about it and actually seeing it, it is not the picture of a river as we are accustomed to see in the east. It is a vital source of water coming out of the Sierras that is used in the irrigation of the agricultural fields and unfortunately, it is the same runoff from these fields that is poisoning much of the river. It is also located in a fast growing region of California from a housing and population standpoint which is generating the utilities to want to impound more of the river for a source of water to supply the building boom
