This week, KPCW is proud to announce that Michal Biskup is the winner of the KPCW Water Waste Contest.

Twelve-year-old Michal found his entry while on his way to a school sport:

"I took this photo while I was biking to soccer practice, when I passed Ecker Hill Middle School, I noticed that the sprinklers were set up so that they watered the concrete more than the grass. this is a problem because less water got to the plants and more got to the concrete, where it would evaporate or go into a sewer.

KPCW Website Improved For Mobile

Transportation's Uncomfortable Choices

Mar 16, 2015


Most think that using mass transit is a good idea… for the other guy. 

But development in and around Park City is bringing traffic congestion with it. 

What are the potential solutions? 

KPCW will air the live public forum hosted by the Project for Deeper Understanding on this issue. 

The discussion will include a panel of experts from the county and city, Mountain Accord, the resorts and community members. 

Thursday, March 26th from 7 to 9 PM 

Live from St. Luke’s Church 

A community day coming up Friday will benefit KPCW Radio and usher in the Sundance Film Festival with a live broadcast of The Sundance Reel with KPCW's This Green Earth's hosts Chris Cherniak and Nell Larson. Lynn Ware Peek has more.
