Can Better Technologies Save Endangered California Salmon?

Up until the 1800s, salmon were so plentiful in California that these “ bits of silver pulled out of the water ” could be observed ascending the waterways, thousands at a time, each season. However, decades of logging, the construction of dams, and other human interventions have changed the waterways of the state so significantly that the range of the salmon has been permanently altered. Now, a team of scientists collaborating through the Interagency Ecological Program have developed a plan to improve salmon management and, hopefully, help save the species. Team members from NOAA Fisheries, the California Department of Water Resources, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, and the U.S.

Weather Extremes Shaking Up Fouling Communities in Urban Estuaries

Marine fouling species may seem to be lowly creatures, situated toward the bottom of that portion of the food chain animals comprise. However, these filter-feeding invertebrates that make their homes on hard underwater substrates such as the hulls of ships are among some of the most successful invasive species. Their secret is simply their ability to latch onto human vehicles and survive. Now, new research on the fouling community in the San Francisco Bay indicates that a single wet winter and the change in salinity that high levels of precipitation bring can knock back the advance of these hearty creatures. Marine biologist Andrew Chang of the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center’s Tiburon, California branch published this new research in December of 2017.

Fragile Water Infrastructure, Often On the Verge of Collapse

Do you know what's in your water? How certain are you that it's safe? In mid-December 2017, researchers from across the United States specializing in various disciplines came together at the annual meeting of the Society for Risk Analysis to present reports on a range of problems in American water infrastructure. This plumbing safety research illuminates a disturbing litany of failures in water safety all over the country—but also highlights a commitment to fixing problems and taking a proactive approach to keeping water infrastructure safer. The Replacement Era In 2001, the American Water Works Association (AWWA) released a report entitled, “Dawn of the Replacement Era: Reinvesting in Drinking Water Infrastructure.
