I’ve been thinking a lot about water lately. My work recently added water to the list of policy issues that I work on, so I’ve been reading up on it. One of the first books that I read, as a brand new water advocate, is a book called Clean Water: An Introduction to Water Quality and Water Pollution Control. Written by Kenneth Vigil, Clean Water is a great book for anyone concerned about this precious resource who wants to become better informed. In straightforward language, Vigil provides a comprehensive introduction to the many scientific, regulatory, cultural, and geographic issues associated with water quality and water pollution control. He also explains the broader approach of watershed management and suggests ways for citizens to apply what they have learned about clean water at home and in the community.
The book may be too basic for those with more advanced water knowledge, but if you are new to the water field, it’s an informative book. Check it out!
