Resource Description
WATER FOLLIES, Groundwater Pumping and the Fate of America’s Fresh Waters. Glennon. The Santa Cruz River that once flowed through Tucson, Arizona is today a sad mirage of a river. Except for brief periods following heavy rainfall, it is bone dry. The cottonwood and willow trees that once lined its banks have died, and the profusion of birds and wildlife recorded by early settlers are nowhere to be seen. The river is dead. What happened? Where did the water go? Could the groundwater over-pumping that killed the Santa Cruz River devastate other surface waters across the United States? These stories tell of greed, stubbornness, and, especially, the unlimited human capacity to ignore reality. Water Follies, the first book to focus on the impact of groundwater pumping on the environment, brings this widespread but under-appreciated problem to the attention of communities across America. #WTR-13046.
