Description
In the United States we have 926,000 miles of rivers and streams; 1463 million acres of lakes, reservoirs, and ponds; and 56,709 square miles that make up the Great Lakes. As the U.S. was discovered and populated, people located their families and businesses near water. Living near water brings many opportunities and some inconveniences.
In this course we will review some basics about flooding and water pollution as well as explore some specifics about these catastrophes and the sustainable solutions we can employ to prevent them.
