Good Reads

Dr. W. Todd Jarvis, Geography Program and Interim Director of the Institute for Water & Watersheds, has just had his seminal book on groundwater conflict resolution, 'Contesting Hidden Waters: Conflict Resolution for Groundwater and Aquifers', published. This book, the only water conflict book devoted entirely to groundwater, which by some estimates comprises about 98% of unfrozen freshwater, will cement Dr. Jarvis' reputation as the world's expert on groundwater and aquifer conflict management and resolution.
