July 2015 - Clean Water
Cold water from the kitchen faucet on a hot summer day; the captivating sound of a babbling brook; an early morning spent standing in a pure mountain stream and trying to convince a fish that the fly on the end of your line is real–all of these depend on the availability of clean water. But clean water cannot be taken for granted. Vegetation management, road construction, agricultural practices, and urban storm water management are among the many factors that can significantly affect water quality. This month we feature a scientist, research, a product and partnership related to clean water.
