  1. This project (==>) to clean up plastic in the ocean needs engineers!

  2. Water Alternatives has a fascinating issue on the culture ("the hidden dynamics") of water managers.

  4. Subsurface desalination intakes are environmentally and economically better [PDF]

  5. Interested in water management in Asia or Africa? The International Water Management Institute (IWMI)  has hundreds of studies and projects on all dimensions of water. I'd bet that full adaptation of IWMI findings and techniques would end water shortage on both continents.
