America’s rivers and streams are generally suitable for irrigation, supplying drinking water, and home and recreational uses. However, in areas with significant agricultural and urban development, the quality of our nation’s water resources has been degraded by contaminants such as pesticides, nutrients, and gasoline-related compounds.

"Warm" is hardly the first word most of us would think of when contemplating Central Maine’s winter weather. Yet, a recent study by scientists at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), published in the November issue of the journal Climatic Change, suggests what long-time residents have suspected; winter in Central Maine just isn’t quite what it used to be.

New England’s historic long, harsh winters are often the stuff of legends from long-time residents who swear the weather was worse when they were young. It turns out they may well be right. Scientists at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) have found evidence in the region’s rivers that lends credence to the notion that the winters were once longer.

America’s coastal states, the states bordering the Great Lakes, and the Pacific and Caribbean island territories, are experiencing increasingly severe coastal erosion and a variety of other coastal hazards. Most of the hazards are natural, but unwise coastal development and poorly designed manmade alterations have increased the risk of damage to life and property.
