The River Runs Dry

Episode streaming only available in Canada



Episode Description

The Jordan River has been reduced to a trickle. This iconic river that nourished the growth of ancient civilizations has become little more than a glorified sewage canal. The Water Brothers venture to Israel, Palestine, and Jordan to investigate the reasons behind the demise of this once mighty river. From the Sea of Galilee, to the site of Jesus’ baptism, to the massive sinkholes that surround the Dead Sea, Alex and Tyler speak with dedicated individuals who are living in this region mired in conflict and are leading the struggle for fair accessibility to the most essential resource of all – water.
