The Fire in Your Future

While Florida, Texas, Georgia, and other southeastern states are dealing with an overabundance of water and wind, much of the West is burning. By one estimate, 76 wildfires are now raging on more than a million and a half acres in the US; and 139 more are burning in British

Seven Views of the Fate of the Clean Water Act

Seven Views of the Fate of the Clean Water Act

No matter what happens at the national level with funding or changing regulations, protections for clean water aren’t going away. That was the message (I’m tremendously oversimplifying, but I’ll try to elaborate below) from some of the country’s top experts on water quality as they looked at the current regulatory

Serenading the Asian Carp

Serenading the Asian Carp

Who’s afraid of the Asian carp? Lots of people, apparently, including those in the fishing industry throughout the Great Lakes region. The invasive species of fish, which was brought to aquatic farms in the southern US more than 40 years ago, is steadily spreading north. Weighing up to 100 pounds

Rainfall, Nutrients, and the Dead Zone

A few weeks ago in this space, I mentioned the algae blooms plaguing Florida this year, largely the result of nutrient-rich water being released from Lake Okeechobee. Unfortunately, it’s not just Florida that’s experiencing the problem—there’s plenty to go around.

A recently published study in Science shows that excess nutrients

Collaboration on the Columbia River

We generally consider public-private partnerships (P3s) a logical way for the US to repair and replace its aging infrastructure. On occasion, we may even reference Lincoln’s railroads, Eisenhower’s highways, or Kennedy’s space program while extolling the virtues of the private investment for infrastructure renewal. But are these deals always the

We Don’t Have Much Time

We knew it was coming, and now it’s here. The public comment period is open to determine the fate of the Clean Water Rule, also known as the Waters of the US Rule. But the window for getting your comments in is a narrow one—more details on that below.

Waters of the US: Now’s Our Chance To Be Heard

As you’re probably aware, EPA and the US Army Corps of Engineers under the new administration are proposing to rescind the beleaguered Waters of the US Rule, also known as the Clean Water Rule, that went into effect in 2015. You have a narrow window to comment if you wish

Editor’s Comments: We Know What’s in the Water

You might think of this issue as the magazine’s sample case. Decades ago, sales reps ­traveled the country lugging heavy suitcases full of carpet swatches or wall coverings or even miniature models of farm machinery and equipment. Here, in a much easier-to-carry package, are some samples of—well, sampling equipment, which
