Review for Watershed Management Group Inc, Tucson, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am constantly in awe of the incredible work that the staff of Watershed Management Group is doing to restore our groundwater through rainwater harvesting and river restoration. This work is so important because Tucson has been in a drought for 17 years and relies on Colorado river water for nearly all of it's water needs. As more states suffer from drought, there will be more competition for that water. Meanwhile, tailings from abandoned mines are seeping into the Colorado river. In Phoenix, they are selling the CAP water that was stored for future use to Nestle to sell it back to us in plastic bottles. Watershed Management Group is giving individuals the ability to help restore our aquifers through education and a volunteer coop that installs rainwater harvesting features in peoples yards. Their work is vital for the future of Arizona. I think that rainwater harvesting is so important that I blog about it regularly. I am also producing a documentary on rainwater harvesting - so more people can learn about it and incorporate it into their own landscaping. Watershed Management Group is an indispensable resource.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
