Water and the Environment

Stephen J. Vandas, Thomas C. Winter, and William A. Battaglin

Produced in cooperation with the Bureau of Reclamation, National Park Service, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, USDA Forest Service, and the U.S. Geological Survey.

Water – not oil or minerals – is the most controlling resource on Earth. Its distribution, quantity, availability, and quality are the controls for the development of agriculture, industry, rural, urban, and municipal use. Water and the Environment, the 5th publication in the AGI Environmental Awareness Series, provides information about water and its importance; where water comes from; water-related environmental concerns; water protection, policies and regulations; and our future needs for water. This richly illustrated, non-technical publication is appropriate for the general public, educators, and policymakers.

A PDF version is available on our web site. AGI has also compiled several PowerPoint© presentations related to our Environmental Awareness Series. Please browse and learn!

ISBN 0-922152-63-2. Paperback, 8.50"x11.00" 64 pp. item #633601
