Foundation Journalism Team Highlights Water Issues in California and the West With Newsfeed, Articles and More
Article on Salinas Valley Pilot Project Among Array of Resources That Help You Track Western Drought and Understand Colorado River Challenges
As our programs team at the Water Education Foundation is busy this summer putting together fall events such as tours, our annual Water Summit and our Water Leader alum reunion, our journalism team is helping to raise water awareness every day.
You can access our newsfeed each morning of the top articles on water issues in California and the West and even get it sent to your inbox. You can also find interactive maps showing reservoir levels, water-savings tips and more on our special online drought resource page.
And we just published our latest Western Water article focused on a pilot program in the Salinas Valley that is run remotely out of Los Angeles. It’s offering a test case for how California could provide clean drinking water for isolated rural communities plagued by contaminated groundwater that lack the financial means or expertise to connect to a larger water system.
Western Water is among an array of journalism and educational resources the Water Education Foundation offers to help you stay informed on our most important natural resource – water.
- As California and the West struggle with persistent drought, our All Things Drought resource page provides a newsfeed of current drought stories, links to real-time reservoir storage, water supply forecasts, water conservation tips and a drought map that updates weekly.
- Our resources on the Colorado River can help you keep up with history, background and daily news developments affecting this troubled lifeline for 40 million people and more than 4 million irrigated farm acres in the American Southwest. Our resources include a daily newsfeed of unfolding developments, links to deeper coverage in Western Water, and numerous entries in Aquapedia, our online water encyclopedia, that explain the history and context for issues, people and facilities on the river.
