Episode Summary

The debate is intense: Should Walkerville get rid of the swamp by the river and replace it with a fantastic new shopping mall or should they build the mall somewhere else? Carlos, representing his class, is given the thankless task of persuading the town council to keep the smelly old swamp. If he loses the debate, he'll lose to Arnold's pesky cousin Janet! The kids learn that the swamp is an important habitat and natural water filter, but the council's not convinced until a flood occurs. The kids use the bus's capabilities to use the swamp's water absorption along with mini-dams to stop the flow of the water. The city council sees the important of the swamplands to nature and weather.moreless
