Miller cites 3 important steps in sustainable water management:

irrigate crops more efficiently

use water-saving technology

improve watershed mgmt

and several steps in reducing water pollution:

reduce toxicity and volume of pollutants

reuse wastewater, rather than simple discharge

recycle pollutants (like solvents) rather than simply discharging them

Miller closes by indicating we must understand that all aspects of the environment – air, water, soil, and life, is an “interconnected whole”.  This means we need an integrated, holistic approach to environmental management, in order to not move environmental problems from one part of the  environment to another.

A good place to end….good advice.
