By Michael H. Salzman

Fundamental water, the unique resource of our oceans, continues to be being created by way of geological forces. That water, often in a potable shape, involves the earth's floor in hundreds of thousands of locations, a few renowned like Jericho and Bahrain the place it has supplied consuming water for hundreds of thousands of individuals for hundreds of thousands of years. It pours into deep mines around the world. hundreds of thousands of homes at the rocky seashores of Maine get their clean water from wells drilled into the coastline granite. Copenhagen will get all its water from a couple of wells. In Northern Europe, water that may be tapped via wells that don't rely on aquifers is named "ground water". The hallmark of latest, or fundamental, water springs and wells is they supply water at consistent temperature and flow.

But this world-wide resource of "new water" has been overlooked through geologists and laymen in such a lot international locations together with the us. They have been taught that each one potable water comes from the "hydrological cycle" which in simple terms recycles water already at the floor of our earth.

Michael H. Salzman, an engineer and administrator, researched, wrote and released a e-book delivering particular info on "new water". As released in 1960, it may be learn and/or downloaded from this site. it isn't on hand in libraries.

Mike used to be decades pal. He passed me certainly one of his final copies in 1970 and requested me to work out if i'll get a few reputation for it. He instructed me a few prosperous humans desirous to get acclaim for money to construct an aqueduct to convey water from the Colorado River to southern California (they succeeded) had got up and burned all of the copies they can locate. additionally they attempted (and failed) to have him fired as Director of the l. a. Housing Authority.

Today, there's renewed curiosity in "new water". businesses are engaged on tasks to carry potable "new water" to components the place floor and usual good water are infected or approximately exhausted. together with wells for basic water drilled in Australia, Southern California and in different places, it seems that greater than 1,000 such wells were drilled in fresh years.
