AGI Supports National Groundwater Awareness Week

The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is proud to support National Groundwater Awareness Week, March 10-16, 2013. National Groundwater Awareness Week - sponsored by AGI member society, the National Ground Water Association (NGWA) - promotes the responsible stewardship of groundwater through education and outreach initiatives that help make society aware of this life-sustaining resource.

EARTH: Drinking Toilet Water - The Science (and Psychology) of Wastewater Recycling

Would you drink water from a toilet? What if that water, once treated, was cleaner than what comes out of the faucet? Although the imagery isn't appealing, as climate change and population growth strain freshwater resources, such strategies are becoming more common around the world and in the United States.

Promote Groundwater Safety: Protect Your Groundwater Day

The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is proud to support Protect your Groundwater Day (PYGWD) on September 11, 2012. Protect Your Groundwater Day, sponsored by AGI member society, the National Ground Water Association (NGWA) - promotes the responsible stewardship of groundwater through educational and outreach initiatives that help raise societal awareness.

EARTH: Endangered Snow: How Climate Change Threatens West Coast Water Supplies

From Seattle to Los Angeles, anywhere from 50 to 80 percent of the water people use comes from mountain snow. Snow falls in the mountains in the winter, where it's stored as snowpack until spring and summer when it flows down the mountains into reservoirs. It's a clean, reliable source of water. But soon, it may become less dependable, thanks to climate change.

EARTH: Fixing Pakistan's Water Woes

Pakistan is facing tremendous water issues. This summer's flooding has left millions of people without homes and without access to clean drinking water. But water issues - both quantity and quality - are not new to this strategically important country. Waterborne diseases account for 30 percent of all deaths in Pakistan, and kill some 250,000 children each year. Per capita water availability in Pakistan is less than one-ninth of what it is in the U.S. And what's more, researchers say if Pakistan doesn't manage its water resources differently, it's going to actually run out of water. This month, EARTH magazine explores the various facets of Pakistan's water issues.

Water and the Environment

Safe and clean water is central to American life. We expect safe water from every faucet any time we want, and most economic activity relies on readily available and clean water. The American Geological Institute's (AGI) publication, Water and the Environment examines how science addresses many of the issues central to providing clean and safe water for society.
