Water Water Everywhere and Ne'er a Drop to Drink

Water truly is the Elixir of life.  We are fortunate enough to have clean tap water and can even fuss over which type of bottled water to buy and whether it should contain added vitamins.  Others trudge miles to get a small bucket of water to use for everything.  Many more people drink dirty and contaminated water out of polluted creeks and river beds.   Why the disparity?  Who is responsible?  Who can help?  In honour of World Water Day, March 22, 2012 take the opportunity to sign out Brian Fagan's Elixir: a history of water and humankind or another new publication The big thirst : the secret life and turblent future of water by Charles Fishman.  Be sure to join us at the Stoney Creek library for the Engineers Without Borders program Water for the World.
