Okay, so it doesn’t rhyme, but you get the point, eh? Everything we use ends up in the water So if we want to keep our heads above water Before we are all in hot water and we don’t want to end up like fish out of water Then it’s time to test the waters and Protect our watering holes because water contamination is not water under the bridge, and water conservation and preservation are imperative: a watershed for the health, welfare, and economy of our collective.

Consumer Notice has produced A Consumer’s Guide to Reducing Pollution, a comprehensive, yet easy-to-follow handbook for reducing consumer waste. According to Consumer Notice, We The People account for 60% of greenhouse gas emissions, an enormous and pretty frightening number, but one we can probably make a dent in if we all try a little bit harder to reduce our individual carbon footprints. The car you drive, the household products you use, the amount of energy it takes to heat and cool your home, fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, and all the other nasty chemicals that contribute t…

In approximately 1811-1812, Philadelphia laid its first collection system pipes and they were made of wood! As the City grew, the Philadelphia Water Department must have realized that wood wasn’t going to cut it, i.e., it wouldn’t be too long-lasting, and so it began the installation of cast iron pipes. Two centuries later, it’s unclear how many of these 200-year-old cast iron pipes remain beneath the City of Brotherly Love — Philadelphia replaces worn out collection system pipes all the time to reduce incidences of inflow and infiltration or I/I — but what is clear is that Philade…

For years, I’ve wanted to know the answer to this question. What would I do with all my free time once I no longer had deadlines and commitments? Would I go “totally ’round the bend” as my Australian friend, Bernice, used to say. Would I diligently take up one of the many causes I am drawn to and make it my life’s work? Would I start a business, write another novel, or just flake out and start sleeping 12 to 14 hours a day? Possibly all of the above? Celestial — Spirit House On 2/29/24 I leapt into my future, joining the ranks of the recently retired. I can’t say I…

By: Ivy Steinberg-McElroy Wetlands are a vital ecosystem that provide us with much more than recreation— they protect endangered flora and fauna, filter pollutants out of the water, absorb carbon, and act as buffers during flood events. Despite this, wetlands are disappearing at alarming rates, and one-fifth of the world’s wetlands have been lost since 1700. Today is World Wetlands Day and many recognize the value of wetlands but do not know of last year’s Supreme Court decision that put more than half of the wetlands in the United States at risk. In May of 2023, the Supreme Co…
