Western Water Magazine Archive


Western Water Magazine

The flagship of the Foundation, the quarterly Western Water magazine provided in-depth coverage on topics ranging from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, groundwater and ocean water desalination to dam removal, drought in California and the Colorado River Basin, and sustainability of water resources. The first issue of Western Water was published in 1977. Western Water became an online newsroom in 2018 but you can look at the archives and excerpts from the print magazine here as well as buy past issues of the magazine.
