WHEN THE WATER TAP RUNS DRY

REVIEW

This informative documentary warns us not to take the ready availability of water for granted. The film begins with a visual and factual exploration of watersheds and drainage basins before hydrologists, engineers, physicists, and environmental scientists discuss how natural water flow is diverted, explain ways that cities acquire and treat water, talk about wastewater disposal, and provide other information about water supplies and shortages. Colorful maps and close-up and panoramic shots of national watersheds lend support to experts' arguments that changing climate, aging and poorly planned hydrologic infrastructure, extended draining of aquifers, increased

water usage in desert locations, and other practices resulted in drought conditions

in various states... Extras include extended interviews and an option for Spanish

subtitles. Educators' guide available online."

    Booklist

PRODUCT INFORMATION The greatest impacts from climate change will not be warmer temperatures but water shortages. Learn how America's water infrastructure is incapable of handling these changes. There exist solutions that will make us rethink everything from how we use water, to where we live, to who owns water.

Every drop of water that flows through America's rivers or is stored in our lakes and reservoirs is spoken for. Now, America is over-drafting its water supply. How did it come to this? The answers lie in America's outdated water infrastructure, an inflexible water storage system, greater demand from an increasing population and the impacts of global warming. In When the Water Tap Runs Dry, we will look at these issues and provide essential solutions based on a new vision of America's water infrastruc- ture, and customized water rights agreements. If the water crisis is not addressed, the water tap will run dry for many Americans.
