World Water Monitoring Day: 122,000 Take It Personally

Posted February 17, 2010 

According to this week’s World Water Monitoring Day report, some 122,000 people from all over the world were personally involved in monitoring their local water quality and reporting the results. That’s 67% over the number of last year’s participants--a great example of growing public awareness that the average bear can actively (and easily) help safeguard our water.

Urban Rivers: Don’t Miss the Boat to a Sustainable Future for Our Cities!

Posted February 1, 2010

There was a time when large urban cities, like Boston, saw their waterfront locations as assets in transporting wastes away from the city and supporting navigation, commerce, and manufacturing. These urban cities still see the waterfront asset today, but in a different light. Today’s cities want to integrate their waters into urban life as part of building greener, cleaner places for living, recreation, and supporting business and commerce.
