BRUSSELS - Open your tap and close it again. The water you just saw was yours for two seconds before draining again. But what do you know about that water? Where does it come from and where does it go? And how long will it continue to flow from the tap?
In Weg van water, Toon Verlinden and Marjolein Vanoppen take you on a journey through Belgium to answer those questions. They go out with divers who swim in sewers, dig a sand castle in Ostend and drink a very special glass of water in Kuurne. And along the way, they discover that our rainy land is much drier than we might think.
