How we get water – a cartoon


How we get water in our homes is one of my favorite cartoons. It so simply and elegantly shows the irony that while all of us use water, many of us have very little idea how water is managed to move it from the source to tap. Within the dashed black box, hydrology, ecology, infrastructure, engineering, operations, policy, cooperation, conflict, and other elements make managing water complex and difficult. We must look inside the box to continue to educate ourselves (and others) to learn how our complex water system works and can be managed more effectively.

Thank you to for permission to use this cartoon.
