6. The Johnstown Flood

Author: by David McCullough
Published at: Simon & Schuster; Reprint edition (January 15, 1987)
ISBN: 978-0671207144

View on Amazon

The stunning story of one of America’s great disasters, a preventable tragedy of Gilded Age America, brilliantly told by master historian David McCullough. At the end of the nineteenth century, Johnstown, Pennsylvania, was a booming coal-and-steel town filled with hardworking families striving for a piece of the nation’s burgeoning industrial prosperity.

In the mountains above Johnstown, an old earth dam had been hastily rebuilt to create a lake for an exclusive summer resort patronized by the tycoons of that same industrial prosperity, among them Andrew Carnegie, Henry Clay Frick, and Andrew Mellon.

Despite repeated warnings of possible danger, nothing was done about the dam. Then came May 31, 1889, when the dam burst, sending a wall of water thundering down the mountain, smashing through Johnstown, and killing more than 2,000 people. It was a tragedy that became a national scandal.

Graced by David McCullough’s remarkable gift for writing richly textured, sympathetic social history, The Johnstown Flood is an absorbing, classic portrait of life in nineteenth-century America, of overweening confidence, of energy, and of tragedy. It also offers a powerful historical lesson for our century and all times: the danger of assuming that because people are in positions of responsibility they are necessarily behaving responsibly.

10. Where the Water Goes: Life and Death Along the Colorado River

Author: by David Owen
Published at: Riverhead Books; Reprint edition (April 10, 2018)
ISBN: 978-0735216099

View on Amazon

An eye-opening account of where our water comes from and where it all goes. The Colorado River is an essential resource for a surprisingly large part of the United States, and every gallon that flows down it is owned or claimed by someone.

David Owen traces all that water from the Colorado’s headwaters to its parched terminus, once a verdant wetland but now a million-acre desert. He takes readers on an adventure downriver, along a labyrinth of waterways, reservoirs, power plants, farms, fracking sites, ghost towns, and RV parks, to the spot near the U.S.

Mexico border where the river runs dry. Water problems in the western United States can seem tantalizingly easy to solve: just turn off the fountains at the Bellagio, stop selling hay to China, ban golf, cut down the almond trees, and kill all the lawyers.

But a closer look reveals a vast man-made ecosystem that is far more complex and more interesting than the headlines let on. The story Owen tells in Where the Water Goes is crucial to our future: how a patchwork of engineering marvels, byzantine legal agreements, aging infrastructure, and neighborly cooperation enables life to flourish in the desert and the disastrous consequences we face when any part of this tenuous system fails.

Modern water conveyance and storage techniques are the product of thousands of years of human innovation; today we rely on that same innovation to devise solutions to problems surrounding the rational use and conservation of water resources, with the same overarching goal: to supply humankind with adequate, clean, freshwater.

Water Resources Engineering presents an in-depth introduction to hydrological and hydraulic processes, with rigorous coverage of both core principles and practical applications. The discussion focuses on the engineering aspects of water supply and water excess management, relating water use and the hydrological cycle to fundamental concepts of fluid mechanics, energy, and other physical concepts, while emphasizing the use of up-to-date analytical tools and methods.

Now in its Third Edition, this straightforward text includes new links to additional resources that help students develop a deeper, more intuitive grasp of the material, while the depth and breadth of coverage retains a level of rigor suitable for use as a reference among practicing engineers.

14. Troubled Water: What's Wrong with What We Drink

Author: by Seth M. Siegel
Published at: Thomas Dunne Books; 1st edition (October 1, 2019)
ISBN: 978-1250132543

View on Amazon

New York Times bestselling author Seth M. Siegel shows how our drinking water got contaminated, what it may be doing to us, and what we must do to make it safe. If you thought America’s drinking water problems started and ended in Flint, Michigan, think again.

From big cities and suburbs to the rural heartland, chemicals linked to cancer, heart disease, obesity, birth defects, and lowered IQ routinely spill from our taps. Many are to blame: the EPA, Congress, a bipartisan coalition of powerful governors and mayors, chemical companies, and drinking water utilitieseven NASA and the Pentagon.

Meanwhile, the bottled water industry has been fanning our fears about tap water, but bottled water is often no safer. The tragedy is that existing technologies could launch a new age of clean, healthy, and safe tap water for only a few dollars a week per person.

Scrupulously researched, Troubled Water is full of shocking stories about contaminated water found throughout the country and about the everyday heroes who have successfully forced changes in the quality and safety of our drinking water. And it concludes with what America must do to reverse decades of neglect and play-it-safe inaction by government at all levels in order to keep our most precious resource safe.
