Solving the Water Crisis' series

The 'solving the water crisis' video series is the story of my search for solutions to the world wide water crisis.  It started as a simple search for technology to make the more effective use of water but traumatic events quickly showed that the key was the way humans as individuals work within organizations.

Available as a series of free downloads from the web in low resolution .wmv video format (see below) it is now available on DVD.  (see cover notes here) .

Available by email at colinaustin@bigpond.com running time 75 mins. 

Cost $15 in Australia or $18 overseas, including post and packaging. 
Payment by PayPal or direct transfer (please email for details).

The second part of the series will start again in the new year.  The next episode will  look at how a household can be come almost self sufficient in water for garden irrigation. Later episodes will look at scheduling, the most cost effective way of making better us of water.

Then we will look at one of the key hazards on modern irrigation, salinity and salt build up in the soil.
