Probably a lot of readers of /r/water have read Cadillac Desert.

I own a copy of, and have made two false starts reading, The King Of California as recommend by the anonymous author of the blog On The Public Record.

I highly recommend A Great Aridness, a worthy heir to Cadillac Desert.

Also on my to-read list is Rising Tide. I would like to find a book that does for the Great Lakes what Marc Reisner did for water in the American West with his book Cadillac Desert.

A few things I've read this year that have little to do with water:

Namaste! Yes. Have you worked in the water sector in India? I’ve worked on surface water and groundwater supply and quality, flood and drought warning and management in India through WB/FAO and USAID, especially with 14 States and seven Central agencies on early flood warning system in 2002. I’ve stayed at the National Institute of Hydrology and its affiliated Indian Institute of Technology in Roorkee and was impressed by its applied water resources research. I’ve also worked on watershed management and soil and groundwater recharge projects in India from 2004-2008. I also published an invited article in the Financial Times of New Delhi on India’s Water Resources and Arsenic Water Challenges in 2005. I've taught hydrology and water resources to many graduate students from the Subcontinent in the 1970s at the University of Arizona. If you think MENA and UAE are overpopulated, have you been to India? Is your interest in water commercial, academic, pedagogical, hobbyist or just curious? Is your interest in drinking water, irrigation, commercial, industrial, hydropower, energy water use? Are you still in elementary school? If you are keenly interested in water technologies, you might look into applications of direct solar pumps and desalination systems, dual solar/diesel generators, and hauling water barrels and water donky in rural areas. Incidentally, my thesis advisor wrote a charming book on his experiences in India: I gave out several copies of Sol's book to Indian water managers and agency heads on my first of several assignments in India in 2002. What do you specifically mean by "alternative water technologies?" Cloud seeding? Desalting saline aquifers? Rainwater harvesting? Watershed harvesting?

My pleasure - I love talking about water.

The Elkay filtration units spec sheet here look like they're just a standard Activated carbon/Activated Charcoal cartridge. You should be able to achieve similar results with most Activated Carbon units - getting anything fancier (i.e. any "multi-stage" "microfilter" marketing jargon or any RO/DI systems) would be unnecessary (and a waste of money).

The Elkay systems look good for institutional use, but if you want a system for home - and I don't recommend any specific brand/product, i just want to illustrate options you can consider a simple pitcher like this or an undersink system like this paired with this to achieve similar results.

I'm willing to bet that most of your taste related issues are due to the chlorine residual present in your water (it's by far the most frequent cause of complaints).

There are plenty of people whose careers (mine included) that revolve entirely around western water law, supply, growth, etc. It is pretty cool stuff.

Cadillac Desert is a good book to start learning about some of these issues.

Once I know the proper quantity of soda ash would I be able to add it directly in the future? (assuming same starting pH)

I've also ordered a mixing rod that I can run with my cordless drill so I can thoroughly stir the water after doctoring it.

I'll definitely look up titration... it's been quite a long time since I had high-school chemistry. :)

Came here to say MWH. If you're looking for a more undergraduate level type of book, look at Water and Wastewater Engineering, Principles and Practices. We used it in an undergrad class I was in, it explains processes and designs, as well as gives some generally used dimensions and values.

Buy an RO setup.

APEC Top Tier 5-Stage Ultra Safe Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water Filter System (ESSENCE ROES-50)

Orrr, you could easily install one of these to easily stop the flow of water while you soap up so you don’t have to try to deal with an app in the shower.

In case you are still looking, you can always go with something like...this.

Sits on your countertop, attaches to your faucet with a valve, and doesn't require any tools.

You have a cool list there. I enjoyed [The Ghost Map: The Story of London's Most Terrifying Epidemic--and How It Changed Science, Cities, and the Modern World] (

According to the beef industry, it takes somewhere between 450-850 gallons water/pound of beef. Less biased research has put that number as high as 5,000 gallons water/pound of beef. Even at 450 gallons water/pound of beef it is still pretty ridiculous.

The vast majority of this water is consumed by irrigating fields to produce feed for cows. And this is no small portion of total water supplies. In CO, 30% of the total water use in the state goes directly to the livestock industry.

Cadillac Desert put it very succinctly "The West’s water crisis — and many of its environmental problems as well — can be summed up, implausible as this may seem, in a single word: livestock." As a restoration ecologist working in the western US, there is no greater hurdle I face than damage from cattle and cattle related activities.
