About this book

Offers an accessible introduction to the issues affecting the quality of our most essential and precious resource - clean, fresh water.

A revelation ... the book brings together information from the various provinces and states not otherwise found in one published source. Gerald Killan, principal and professor of history, King's College, University of Western Ontario "The effort to combine contributing voices across an international watershed boundary is unique ... Its many voices succeed at balancing analytical insights with a broader public voice which calls for watershed preservation, restoration, and, ultimately, recovery. The clear message is that all of us should continue to transform this watershed in accordance with a shared vision, not as though by default." Michael Black, chair, The California Studies Association
