Researchers have found indications that hydraulic fracturing fluid is killing livestock and causing loss of fertility and miscarriages.
Here’s a clever idea for water storage – and cheap, too!
A new water treatment system is being built to clean up La Brea Tar Pits runoff.
Save the Frogs, a nonprofit organization dedicated to amphibian conservation, is competing for $250,000 in the Chase Community Giving Contest. Save the Frogs is involved in many projects to improve water quality around the world.
The Glines Canyon Dam is coming down. The dam has been blocking the natural water flow of the Elwha River and salmon migration route for a century.
The ecology of the Great Lakes has been struggling for many years. Parts of them are dead and others are dying. “Feast and Famine in the Great Lakes” examines the reasons why.
The Elwha River Restoration ends one hundred years of hydropower and restores the river to its natural state.
In 2020, four dams obstructing the Klamath River in northern California may finally reach their demise. For many decades, salmon have not been able to reach the upper portions of the river, and the dams have created an unhealthy environment responsible for massive fish kills and closed commercial salmon fishing along the California and Oregon […]
