Series Description

FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.

Program Description

New Jersey resident discovers his water is contaminated by a nearby toxic waste dump. Frank Kaler's story begins simply enough when he requests a water test because his children develop skin lesions after bathing. FRONTLINE chronicles Kaler's six-year battle with local and federal officials over the chemical pollution of his drinking water.
