Episode Description:

In his seventy first episode of Expedition New England, Scott Tucker takes you on a journey into the changing face of pollution. Instead of looking for pipes and smoke stacks as the usual suspects he ends up at your doorstep.

Nonpoint source pollution is leaching into our ground water “as well as the rivers and streams” from poorly maintained septic systems, untreated dog waste left on the lawn as well as thousands of gallons of oil spilling daily into our rivers and streams all over North America.

And true to Expedition New England form Scott heads off shore on a SCUBA adventure with trusted diving partner Chris Pimley and Captain Bill Lussier of the Northeast Charter Boat Company to get a close up look at Harbor Seals in the Gulf of Maine before they begin the journey to Long Island Sound for their winter respite. And thanks to research by Dr. Susan Shaw it’s clear that these Harbor seals of Maine are dying as a result of consumption of fish contaminated from DDT and PCB that came from nonpoint source pollution over 40 years ago.
