Rural Water

Volume 5 Number 5 September/October 2006

Water issues in the rural Southwest are growing along with the population, and this issue of Southwest Hydrology looks at the unique water challenges faced by rural communities. In the area of water resources, feature articles address funding and leadership challenges in rural communities, the effects of Arizona’s legislation on protecting rural water supplies, and movement in New Mexico toward regionalization (or simply banding together). In the water quality arena, the articles cover the impacts of the new arsenic standard on small providers, the contaminants that are showing up in individual and small system wells, and efforts to help farmers in rural California protect their groundwater.
