Lexicon of Groundwater and Water Well System Terms

NGWA Press

Among the definitions of a lexicon is "a special vocabulary" and this is the National Ground Water Association's version, which contains more than 2,000 industry terms.

The document was created by a task force of industry professionals and contains terms with the most relevancy to the various groundwater professions as to the use, protection, remediation, and management of groundwater. It was first published in 2011 and a second version with more terms was created in 2013.

While there are regional differences in the use of some terms, the document serves as an ideal collection of the definitions that relate to groundwater and the professionals that work with it.

The Big Thirst

By Charles Fishman
Free Press

The focus of this book is society's relationship with water. New York Times best-selling author Charles Fishman states that while water is the most vital substance in our lives it is something that has been taken for granted for too many years.
He then takes readers on journey through water-obsesses hotels in Las Vegas to the parched Australian outback to water being used to produce iPhones and Blackberries. He discusses the past of people thinking it was free to the new era of water issues facing nations today.
He then details how there is still no reason for a global water crisis as there is more than enough water; it just has to be used smartly. The message is cautionary but optimistic -- that rediscovering the special qualities of water is essential to rescuing us from water scarcity.
