Drought: Aquafornia Water Word of the Week
An excerpt from Aquapedia’s comprehensive entry includes the following: “Drought — an extended period of limited or no precipitation — is a fact of life in California and the West, with water resources following boom and-bust patterns. No portion of the West has been immune to drought during the last century and drought occurs with much greater frequency in the West than in other regions of the country.”
To learn more about drought, Aquapedia lists additional useful resources, including these from the Water Education Foundation: “Layperson’s Guide to Water Conservation,” “Dealing with the ‘D’ Word: The Response to Drought, Western Water, Nov./Dec. 2008” and “A Drought-Proof Supply: The Promise of Recycled Water, Western Water, July/Aug. 2008.”
Drought will be among the issues discussed during the Foundation’s upcoming Lower Colorado River Tour (field trip) Feb. 26-28. Learn more about the tour and reserve your spot at this link.
In addition to its more than 200 definitions of water terms from A to Z, Aquapedia also includes videos, photos, a directory of water interests, acronyms and bios of historical water people.
