Russian River: Aquafornia Water Word of the Week
The Russian River, which has been in the news, is a Water Education Foundation tour October 9-10 and this week’s Aquafornia Water Word of the Week from sister site Aquapedia, the Foundation’s vetted, online water encyclopedia.
According to an Aquapedia excerpt, “The Russian River is one of the major northern streams that drain the sparsely populated, forested coastal area that stretches from San Francisco to the Oregon border. Other North Coast waterways include the Klamath, Trinity, Eel and Smith [see also Aquapedia’s entry on North Coast Rivers].”
To explore the Russian River further, Aquapedia’s entry also lists the “Layperson’s Guide to Flood Management” and “A Tale of Two Rivers: The Russian and the Santa Ana, Western Water, May/June 2009.”
Along with definitions about Western water resource issues, Aquapedia includes videos, photos, timelines, water terms, a directory of water interests, bios about historical water people, and a useful acronyms section.
