"Water You Waiting For?" is a 12-minute video from the United States Environmental Protection Agency showcasing the water profession for high school and/or vocational technical school students. This video highlights the water profession in four areas -the value of water, job responsibilities, career successes, and environmental contribution. The video is designed so that each of these chapters can either be viewed separately, appealing to that student's curiosity, or can be viewed in it's entirety.
