An excellent reason to consider storm-water retainers on the tops of urban buildings. As it is, all that H2O drains right into our sewage systems, often dangerously taxing

Water shortage ‘a global problem’
By Imogen Foulkes
BBC News, Geneva
The report says water loss is a problem facing the whole world
Rich countries face increasing water shortages, a report by conservation organisation WWF warns.
A combination of climate change and poor resource management is leading to water shortages in even the most developed countries, it says.
It urges water conservation on a global scale and asks rich states to set an example by repairing ageing water infrastructure and tackling pollution.
The report was released in Geneva just ahead of World Water Week.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
