  • Canadian city to get 21,000 gallons of water by air amid suspected contamination crisis
    Public health officials have told residents of Canada’s northernmost capital not to use tap water for drinking and cooking due to suspected fuel contamination in the city’s water supply. The city council of Iqaluit declared a state of emergency Monday and later urged its 7,000-plus residents not to swallow water when taking a shower. Municipal authorities said they were investigating “infiltration into underground chambers” at a city water treatment plant as the potential source of contamination but have not ruled other possibilities.

  • Pleasanton, Calif., mandates 15% water reduction as community faces worsening drought
    Pleasanton, Calif., residents and businesses will now be required to cut their potable water usage by 15% compared to last year, after the City Council unanimously declared a local drought emergency and water shortage. City officials cited a second consecutive year of dry conditions and low reservoir levels for making the move, as well as an unsuccessful public outreach campaign earlier this year that asked residents to voluntarily reduce their water use.

  • Water is scarce in California. But farmers have found ways to store it underground
    Aaron Fukuda admits that the 15-acre sunken field behind his office doesn't look like much. It's basically a big, wide hole in the ground behind the headquarters of the Tulare Irrigation District, in the southern part of California's fertile Central Valley. But "for a water resources nerd like myself, it's a sexy, sexy piece of infrastructure," says Fukuda, the district's general manager. KRCU, Oct. 5
