New drinking water web resource
The National Academy of Sciences and the Global Health and Education Foundation have released an interactive educational web resource about drinking water, Safe Drinking Water is Essential. The site uses sliding panels, pictures and maps to allow the user to explore information about drinking water sources, distribution and treatment. For example, the Technologies Decision Tool shows recommended treatment options based on type of water supply. Links to other online resources and a glossary are included. In HOORC's Library, you can find The environmental science of drinking water by Patrick J. Sullivan, Franklin J. Agardy, and James J.J. Clark.
