Running Out of Water: The Looming Crisis and Solutions to Conserve Our Most Precious Resource

There is no alternative to clean water. Today we have little concept of how precarious our access to clean water truly is and what might interrupt that access.

In accessible language, water policy expert Susan Leal and Harvard Professor Peter Rogers explain the water and wastewater challenges facing the United States and the world. Running Out of Water: The Looming Crisis and Solutions to Conserve Our Most Precious Resource takes a proactive approach.

Leal and Rogers make the case that the looming water crisis is avoidable and that solutions are possible. The authors root their assertions in real-life examples that can be replicated. Most importantly, Running Out of Water shows us how collective action can help forestall a global water crisis.

a book about water that is smart without being scholarly, concerned without sounding apocalyptic, optimistic without being unrealistic.
