  • Mood:

Groundwater Changes

... will have devastating impact on eastern United States

Ways to reduce this problem include:

* Start conserving water now.

* Use water-catching techniques everywhere.  Catch it in rainbarrels.  Dig swales.  Bury logs.  Route runoff through rain gardens or marshes into ponds.

* Plant more trees.  Large forests make their own rainstorms.

* Also stop cutting down the trees we already have.

* Check the local water budget to avoid taking out more water than flows into rivers, groundwater, etc.

* Encourage people to move from areas that are or will be short on water to areas with plenty.
