  1. This Nature Conservancy site helps you identify the source of your drinking water in California. Go learn something.

  2. Another article on the difference between investing in water as a resource and water services.

  3. Jamie Workman and I discuss Heart of Dryness (his book on sustainability in Botswana), good dams-bad dams and his work on fisheries at EDF (70 min video). Also read this article linking poor water management to dead fisheries.

  4. Top ten desalination disasters... from a financial perspective.

  5. Water Alternatives has a special issue on "corporate engagement in water policy" that, IMO, puts too much weight on vague "stakeholder interests" and too little on the importance of government failure. I lament this omission because my paper on that topic was rejected from that issue, which also has an apologetic paper on water footprinting that's really a veiled defense for using a failed methodology. Do NOT put these people in charge of your water! If you want to read something a little more relevant, read how businesses are wrestling with the value and management of water.
