Aqua Shock: The Water Crisis in America
Susan J. Marks
December 5, 2009
The lack of water is no longer just a problem in the arid West. Drought, contaminated groundwater, overuse, and more have affected water supplies from Massachusetts to California, from Georgia to Wisconsin.
Aqua Shock is a clear-eyed, objective look at how we arrived at this crisis point. Find out what’s happening to America’s shrinking water supply: the problems, the players, the complexities, and the possible solutions.
Award-winning journalist Susan Marks uses real-life conflicts to show how the battle for water is being fought every day everywhere. She draws on interviews with water experts, research from universities and think tanks, and studies from national and international governmental organizations.
