Book: ‘Melbourne’s water catchments’

In a fit of shameless self-promotion, I’m going to spruik my new book. (because if you can’t ¬†show it off on your own blog, where can you?)

It’s called Melbourne’s water catchments: perspectives on a world-class water supply. It’s available from CSIRO Publishing.

The book is an account of the history of Melbourne’s water supply (I bet you didn’t see that coming), from the squalid swamps of the first settlements to the sophisticated system in place today. How have ecological, biological, economic and political pressures affected the water supply over time? What challenges will Melbourne face for water supply in the future? Find out in the book!
