#waterroundup for June 22nd, 2018
Saturday, June 23, 2018
It was a big week in water news, with outlets reporting on water security crises looming all around the globe — from California to India the water may be running dry soon. Let’s take a look with this week’s water roundup:
Water security is quickly becoming a widespread problem, not only abroad but even here at home in the US. WIRED took a look at the water security crisis that may soon be on California’s horizon.
With water crises facing cities everywhere, they are rapidly being forced to cope with innovative new solutions. WIRED also took a look at how Los Angeles is making moves to ensure the future of its water security is safe.
Meanwhile, in India, the crisis is looming — and fast. The BBC took a look at exactly what a rapidly growing population and outdated infrastructure may mean for the country’s future.
Water contamination can come from everywhere, from existing ground minerals to industrial runoff, but one you may not think of is simple human activity. National Geographic detailed new research out of Europe that shows just how powerful human’s impact can be through a particularly interesting metric: the levels of cocaine that have entered the waterways.
These days, water is being infused with just about everything, and nothing can be more of-the-moment than Rosé. Refinery29 took a look at one new startup’s attempt to make hydration fit a bit better into the “Rosé all Day” ideal.
