Battling Drought

The extreme drought in the US Southwest has brought the issues of water use into the media spotlight. The one-two punch of climate change and political turf battles that have plagued the area since the Wild West have upped the ante for rethinking our policies. This eBook, Battling Drought, takes a long look at this situation from the early engineering projects, such as building the Hoover and Grand Coulee dams, which were designed to tame the rivers, to the recycling and restoration efforts of today.
