Issue #54: Sustainable Water

You ain’t gonna miss your water until your well runs dry. ~Bob Marley

Continuing with my recent theme of sustainable living, we can’t forget water. But, unfortunately, we seem to have too little or too much, often simultaneously. For example, continuing drought has reduced Lake Mead, the largest reservoir in the United States, to 35% of its capacity, the lowest since 1937. Yet, at the same time, the Pacific Northwest has experienced extreme rainfall, causing flooding and landslides.
