WEB EXCLUSIVE: Preventing the Next Urban Water Crisis


In the Age of Scarcity now upon us, fresh water shortages are an increasingly serious global problem. With water restrictions emerging in many developed countries and water diversions for industrial, urban and environmental reasons stirring up oceans of controversy, there is a growing thirst for innovative approaches to reducing our water footprint.

Dry Run by Jerry Yudelson discusses ways to manage scarce water resources and handle upcoming urban water crises, and explains water issues and proposes solutions for homes, buildings, facilities and schools.

Jerry Yudelson is the president of Yudelson Associates, green building consultants. He has trained over 3,000 people in the LEED green building rating system. He chairs Greenbuild, the world’s largest green building conference, and has written six books on green building (all available at New Society Publishers, www.newsociety.com).
