Update to Layperson’s Guide to California Water Just Published; Available for Order Now
The Layperson’s Guide to California Water, the anchor of the Water Education Foundation’s popular series of Layperson’s Guides, has just been updated and published.
“We felt an update was in order, given all of the developments over the past couple of years – the drought, the water bond and the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act,” said Jennifer Bowles, Foundation executive director.
The Layperson’s Guide to California Water provides an excellent overview of the history of water development and use in California. It includes sections on the state, federal and Colorado River delivery systems; Delta issues; water rights; environmental issues; water quality; and options for stretching the water supply such as seawater desalination, groundwater banking and increased water recycling.
“It’s an essential read for anyone who wants to get a quick grasp on water and how it flows and works in California,” said Sue McClurg, Foundation deputy executive director.
The guide is available to order for $15 here. If you are a major contributor to the Foundation ($100 or more), your free guide will be in the mail soon.
“We want our members to have the most up-to-date information from a reliable and impartial source so we offer updates of any of our Layperson’s Guides as a benefit to major contributors,” Bowles said.
The Foundation’s Layperson’s Guides offer readers an easy-to-understand, broad overview and perspective on a variety of important water topics. They are available as a set or individually.
