THIS WEEK’S POLL looked at favorite water memories around holidays, such as the 4th of July, happening this week. It will likely come as no surprise that “fireworks displays” over a body of water were among the top memories, garnering two thirds of the vote, with family reunions and picnics alongside lakes securing the other third. Access to water is key to our enjoying freedom, the focus of this U.S. Holiday. Global Water Works staff will be off on the July 4th U.S. Holiday, returning July 5. We wish all around the world the same independence, which is enhanced by access to precious water resources.

This week into the fourth of July Holiday. What are your best memories of the 4th of July and water?

THE WONDER OF WATER is made evident through man’s attempt to control it. GeoengineeringWatch’s founder, Dane Wigington advises those who are innovating to be watchful of unintended consequences, and lends his 20 years of research in this area to help all be discerning of natural vs. unnatural weather patterns.

TECH TALK: Sandra Bock, organizer of the Off-grid Expo and Conference taking place Dec. 7-8 in Augsburg, Germany, briefed Mary Eggert on their plans for this year’s program. You’ll find yourself in great company at this innovative new conference which is in a new, expanded space to accommodate demand/interest. If you support rural, mobile, or related off-grid water or energy solutions, consider attending, and submit your abstract via this Call for Papers, open through end of July.

FUN WITH WATER: July is Lake Appreciation Month, and we’ve highlighted a variety of ways you can have fun with your local lake and also improve water quality.

PREPARATION IS KEY: This report, Preparing United States Critical Infrastructure for Today’s Evolving Water Crises includes 11 recommendations for protecting our water utilities.
