This guide is about water on the web--water resources, water issues, water organizations. It
is divided into geopolitical categories: International, National (US),
Regional (New England), and Local (CT). We also have plenty of
information about water in the library; for a "small sip" of the library resources on Water, see the following:
- *NEW in Print* The Atlas of Water: Mapping the World's Most Critical Resource Ref. G1046.C3 C5 2009
Maps demonstrate information visually, and often make that information more understandable than words and charts. Issues include: water shortages & demands, climate impacts, water footprints, dams, ecosystems, sanitation, drinking water and water management.
