Another fascinating take by The Verge, where they take a look at what water security issues at California’s Salton Sea mean for air quality. A great reminder that water quality fundamentally informs every level of a local community’s health.
Water security is a growing concern in more than just California’s deserts, but also around the entire world. A fascinating map and analysis compiled by the LA Times with NASA data takes a look at how water security issues worryingly fall in line with both global inclement levels and even across important boundaries here in the United States.
Watersheds can be large and expansive areas, so their management can often rely upon the cooperation of multiple local groups.

We all love to tote around our favorite bottles for hydration’s sake, but a few weeks back The Telegraph took a look at what may be lingering inside. Fair warning, you may want to give your canteen a good clean.
As the sands of time flow, so too another trend in water has emerged; this time it's selenium-infused H2O. Popsugar took a look at why this one may be more than just the harmless fad that most are, and the dangers that it may cause.
