The Pure Water Occasional for September 1, 2014
In this Labor Day Occasional, you’ll hear about a serious accident at the Zoom Flume, today’s Kee Boon Mein Kaa Labor Day Pow Wow Women’s Water Walk, and the upcoming water lily festival in San Angelo. Learn about the takeover of the Mediterranean sea by plastics, Turkey’s shutdown of the Euphrates, Israel’s ban on water fluoridation, the severe drought in Central America, and the rising-sea-level woes of the Swinomish tribe. Plus California’s continuing drought, the state’s considered ban on private well drilling, and additional water problems caused by the Napa earthquake. Learn why you should not take up underwater welding, and hear about the leak in “America’s water tower.” New evidence of arsenic in North Texas wells caused by fracking, the reemergence of the brain eating amoeba in Louisiana, the ongoing civil rights discussion centering on water shutoffs in Detroit, how to prevent iron stains on sidewalks and buildings, how to sing better, and, as always, there is much, much more.
