The American Water Works Association (AWWA) announced today the publication of The Future of Water: A Startling Look Ahead. As sweeping and transformational changes are heading our way in the not-too-distant future, this ground-breaking book takes a serious look at how the world will soon value water, use water, and access water.

Using his extensive experience in the water industry, Maxwell presents likely scenarios for the broad trends that will have a significant impact upon future water challenges worldwide–population, economics, energy, climate, and pollution. He discusses how the actions of individuals, investors, water utilities, industries, and nations can actually change the future of water.

“The Future of Wateris sobering and exhilarating at the same time. It’s sobering as Maxwell and Yates detail just how water touches so many aspects of modern life, and how dire the situation might be if nothing changes. However, this book is also exhilarating in the fast-paced way it examines the future of water from our own kitchen sinks to massive dams in China.”—Bill Owens, former governor of Colorado.
