Water Supply & Resources

EcoIntelligence water supply and resources articles, speeches, and interviews.This section contains articles, reports, interviews, book and anthology excerpts, PowerPoint presentations, and presentation transcripts on water resources and water supply. Topics include water efficiency and conservation, water quality, drinking water supply, ocean, watershed, and aquifer protection, and creek restoration.

Water resource plans that stress water efficiency and water resources protection are an important part of environmental sustainability. Climate change, overpopulation, and wasteful use are making unsustainable demands on our global freshwater resources. Watersheds and oceans are also at risk because of development, pollution, and global warming. Water efficiency, water conservation, water reclamation, pollution prevention, improved land management, and ecosystem restoration will help us safeguard our water supplies and water habitats.
