This guide compiles information on river dynamics, hydrology, groundwater and other important water-related topics.
Who controls our water resources and how much water do we have left? Can we enact meaningful changes in our personal lives, our policies and our laws to protect our remaining freshwater reserves? Can we learn to share water equitably with each other and the planet? In this collection, some of the world's leading writers, activists, photographers, and artists have come together to answer those questions and put us on a path for change.
The guide attempts to explain how weather patterns and aquifers supply much of the water we use, as well as the intricate systems developed over the past 150 years to deliver water to Colorado households, businesses, and more.
