National Geographic Video: Dam Removal

"October 28, 2011—The White Salmon River in Washington state is flowing again as the nearly 100-year-old Condit Dam was disabled with explosives Wednesday. The reservoir draining took about 2 hours.  Further demolition is scheduled in 2012."

 

Don't have a water table to demonstate fluvial geomorphology?  This Time Lapse video demonstates deposition and erosion powerfully.  This is also a useful discussion started for human and environmental interactions.

Marian Locksley's curator insight, October 14, 2013 3:37 AM

 Rivers are also often the endpoint for much of our industrial and urban pollution and runoff. When it rains, chemical fertilizer and animal waste peppering residential areas and agricultural lands is swept into local streams, rivers, and other bodies of water. The result: polluted drinking water sources and the decline of aquatic species, in addition to coastal dead zones caused by fertilizer and sewage overload.

ACCESS TO WATER IS NOT A HUMAN RIGHT

If you think water is essential to life, think again. European and American multinational corporations have said that "ACCESS TO WATER IS NOT A HUMAN RIGHT."

Think about it and do some serious reading on this issue. Bottled water has proven to be nothing more than bottled tap water.

An excellent collection of research work here.

An essential issue, fresh water and how we treat it.
