Re: E-M:/ Searching for Sprawl and Water Report

We ran this report on August 29, 2002.... Is this it?
Sprawl Compounds Drought Problems - (8/28) Sprawl development is making the nation's drought even more painful by impairing the landscape's ability to recharge aquifers and surface waters, according to a new report released today by American Rivers, the Natural Resources Defense Council, and Smart Growth America. Nationwide, paved-over land sends billions of gallons of water into streams and rivers as polluted runoff, rather than into the soil to replenish groundwater. The report -- Paving the Way to Water Shortages: How Sprawl Aggravates Drought -- estimates the extent of this phenomenon in 18 rapidly growing cities.

Subject: E-M:/ Searching for Sprawl and Water Report

Does anyone out there remember seeing a report issued in the last month or so regarding urban sprawl's effect on Michigan water supplies? I'm recalling specifically discussion effects on aquifer and lake recharge.

If you can help me find it, please reply to me individually at bradmec@voyager.net
