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.
