Irrigation of the land with seawater desalinated by fusion power is ancient. It's called 'rain'. - Michael McClary

There are several great resources available that thoroughly discuss the many aspects of stormwater management. While our planet is primarily covered by water, only 3% is actually fresh-water. And while that small percentage has been sustaining life on land for centuries, it is nevertheless essential that we understand how to responsibly cope with its ever-increasing demand. There are measures we can take both high on the rooftops and down in the dirt that will aid us in our efforts. The follow is a list of references that will inform, educate, and inspire you to understand the importance of stormwater management. Further resources may be brought to the attention of the Hanover Township Environmental Commission.
