Advanced Simulation & Modellin

Edited by Dubravka Pokrajac and Ken Howard
CRC Press and UNESCO

The book is part of UNESCO's Urban Water Series that addresses fundamental issues related to the role of water in cities and the effects of urbanization on the hydrological cycle and water resources.
This title details the result of a project of UNESCO's International Hydrological Programme. It presents UGROW, a complete and fully integrated modeling package for simulating urban water systems. As a decision-support tool for urban water management, it focuses on urban groundwater, but all other key urban water system elements are fully represented and seamlessly linked.
A CD-ROM containing a fully functional version of UGROW is included in the book.

Analysis of Change in Water

Prepared by Richard C. O'Sullivan
NGWA Press

This report was prepared for the National Ground Water Association's Planning Council in June 2008 so the Association could better understand how to serve its members in light of substantial changes in its member markets.
The nation's and the world's water supplies have been affected by population growth, strong economic growth and rising household affluence, climate change, and more water-intensive agricultural output and water-intensive energy policies.
With so many forces redefining opportunities and demands, the report helps define the opportunities and demands placed on those working in the groundwater industry.
The report is broken into three sections: Analysis of the drivers of change in water markets, regulation, and public policy; Scenarios of key finds for NGWA members; and Summary of Alternative Futures.

Contesting Hidden Waters

By W. Todd Jarvis
Routledge

The book is unlike others about conflict resolution and negotiations over water resources as it focuses exclusively on conflicts over groundwater and aquifers.
It explores challenges presented by these resources, which are very different than those posed by surface water. Whereas surface watersheds are static, groundwater boundaries are value laden and constantly changing during development.
The book describes various issues surrounding the governance and management of these resources and the various parties involved in conflicts and negotiations over them. Also offered are options for addressing the challenges and issues through a transdisciplinary approach.

Groundwater Economics

By Charles A. Job
CRC Press

Water issues are always economic issues and this book explores economic evaluation and cost-benefit analysis for the use, protection, remediation, and conservation of groundwater.

Handbook of Suggested Practice for the Design and Installation of Ground Water Monitoring Wells

by NGWA staff under contract with the U.S. EPA's Environmental Monitoring Systems Laboratory
NGWA

This book presents practices currently used in the design and installation of monitoring wells. Emphasis is placed on the constraints dictated by hydrogeology conditions and limitations imposed by the availability of equipment to do the work that is needed. These constraints are balanced against the need to construct a well that will allow sampling, testing, and introduction of necessary tools. A matrix is provided to assist in the evaluation of drilling techniques. Procedures for equipment decontamination, well installation and completion, well development, well management, and well abandonment are discussed.

Public Fountains of the City of Dijon

translated by Patricia Bobeck
Kendall/Hunt Publishing

This is a complete translation of Henry Darcy's Les Fontaines publiques de la ville de Dijon, which he wrote in 1856. It describes the construction of Dijon's water supply system. In an appendix, Darcy describes his experiments on water flow through sand and the empirical law he concluded from the results. This law, which became known as Darcy's law, is the foundation of the science of hydrogeology. The translation makes Darcy now accessible to modern-day scientists. The book also includes 28 plates of engineering drawings that were originally published as a separate volume.

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.

The Interactive Roles of Surface Water & Ground Water

NGWA Press

This 20-minute DVD demonstrates the interaction between groundwater and surface water through a video demonstration. The DVD was produced by a team at the International Ground Water Modeling Center at the Colorado School of Mines. The effort was led by Eileen Poeter, Ph.D., a former NGWREF Darcy Lecturer. The tool is designed to educate the public regarding the interaction of surface water and groundwater in conjunctive use situations. In an objective and scientifically sound manner, the video illustrates how groundwater and surface water interact in different geologic settings with certain factors added in such as domestic wells, domestic waste water systems, and irrigation structures.

Unquenchable

By Robert Glennon
Island Press

The author of Water Follies provides a look at water in America today in a book that has been called "both frightening and wickedly funny."
Discussed are the Las Vegas strip, faux snow in Atlanta, super-sized bathrooms, mega-farms, billion-dollar water deals, politics, and more.
Glennon argues in the book that people cannot engineer their way out of the problem or use odd schemes. Rather, he provides an answer that is a market-based system with water valued as a commodity and a human right.

As U.S. Geological Survey hydrologist Francis H. Chapelle reveals in the delightful and informative Wellsprings: A Natural History of Bottled Spring Water, a complex story of geology, hydrology, and history lies behind every bottle of spring water. This book chronicles the history of the bottled water industry in America from its beginnings in Europe hundreds of years ago to the present day. In addition, Wellsprings describes the chemical characteristics that make some waters desirable and provides an overview of the geological circumstances that produce them. Accessibly written and well illustrated, this volume is both a revealing account and a user's guide to natural spring waters.
