Good Water Blogs

I read a lot of stuff, filtering it down to find the right content for this blog, and I thought it would be nice to share some good blogs with you. (I'd also love to hear about good blogs that I've missed, especially if they cover water issues in the Western US.)
  • Aquafornia gives a thorough feed on water events in California
  • In Chance of Rain, Emily Green brings a keen eye to water in Southern California and Nevada.
  • jfleck offers good commentary on Southwestern water issues, with an emphasis on New Mexico.
  • Knowledge Problem is all about energy markets; look here to see the "future" (potential?) of water markets.
  • At WaterWired, "Aquadoc" covers national and international water issues, with an emphasis on groundwater hydrology.
Some good, non-water blogs are:I am omitting Alternet, Blue Marble (Mother Jones), Environmental Capital (WSJ), Green.view (Economist), Thirsty in Suburbia, Sustainablog, Water Numbers (Peter Gleick) and Yale Environment 360 because their coverage is too sporadic and/or weak on economics to recommend.

Hello David,
I'm keeping a water rights adjudication (and acequias) blog at least for this year while I'm on sabbatical.
But perhaps it's not 'economic' enough? :)

Hi, David.

Thanks for the WaterWired shout-out; much appreciated. I don't particularly emphasize groundwater hydrology, although my very long posts often cover that subject.

@DR -- Looks like your blog offers useful institutional details, but not so much economics. I'll send it to some people in NM...

@Aquadoc -- wasn't trying to imply that you don't have breadth or that you wear blinders :)

hi dave, nice work. i am also working on a charity water project i would like you to check out http://www.dellchallenge.org/projects/free-water-poor

David Zetland said...

@nuku -- free water is not sustainable w/o managing demand and establishing an operator. How are you going to do (NOT fund) that?

I would like to know of a few blogs that discuss various water treatment technologies. I represent a technology which is often misunderstood and underrated, that of electrocoagulation: http://www.powellwater.net . Any suggestions? I would like to be able to contribute to the blogs and make sure everybody is getting quality info.
