Excerpt From "Replenish: The Virtuous Cycle of Water & Prosperity": Working Towards a Better Water Future

Leading expert on international water issues, Sandra Postel, has released a new book, “Replenish: The Virtuous Cycle of Water and Prosperity.” Exploring contemporary water challenges and innovative water projects from all over the world, the book uncovers new, sustainable solutions to ensure a secure water future. 

From the Mississippi River, where farmers are planting cover crops to reduce polluted runoff, to California, where farmers are using floodwaters to recharge groundwater reserves, Postel showcases successful water solutions that work with, rather than against, nature's rhythms.

"Nothing is more important to life than water, and no one knows water better than Sandra Postel. Replenish is a wise, sobering, but ultimately hopeful book," says Elizabeth Kolbert, author and environmental journalist at The New Yorker.

Sandra Postel directs the independent Global Water Policy Project and lectures, writes, and consults on global water issues. She is co-creator of Change the Course, the national water stewardship initiative awarded the 2017 US Water Prize for restoring billions of gallons of water to depleted rivers and wetlands.
