Reflections on water
There is exactly the same amount
of fresh water in the world today as
there was at the time of the building
of the Great Pyramid some 4500 years
ago. The difference is that there were
roughly 9 million people in the world
then, and now there are 45 cities with
that many people. 7.8 billion people,
and counting.
U.S. cities are spending millions,
sometimes billions of dollars, to
provide water to growing populations.
Since the amount of water is fixed, and
its availability is declining as we empty
our aquifers, cities have turned to con-
servation of water. Plumbing that uses
less water is mandated in some cities.
One of the great triumphs of the
20th century was the prohibition
against dumping sewage and industrial
waste into our lakes and rivers, and the
development of wastewater treatment.
Wastewater reclamation is now a
mature technology, converting sewage
into potable water. When the Cuyahoga
River caught on fire in 1969 (sending
flames up to 5 stories high), the em-
barrassment lit a fire (pun intended)
and in 1972, we had the Clean Water
Act. Today, the Cuyahoga is a clear
stream—with fish!! The hard-fought
battle against lake and river pollution
has raged since the Civil War. Today
in the U.S., cholera and typhoid are
practically unheard of; most rivers and
streams are clean enough to supply
municipal water systems; and river and
riparian fauna are returning.
