Hydrology and Water Resources in Arizona and the Southwest
Abstract:
Better use and recycling of fresh water, which often recharges the oceans, would reduce man's disruption of nature to increase his supply of potable water. The global distribution of water, desalination, water reclamation and recycling, the roles of soils and plants in recycling and urban misuse of water are discussed. Man can increase his supply of food and good fresh water by recycling and nutrient balance, which imply living off his wastes. Intimate involvement of soils and plants in the production of fresh water and food is clear. Soils and plants should be equally involved in converting our waste water into potable water and useful nutrients. Numerous examples of how this may be done and how it is being done are presented.
