California could learn a thing or two from Melbourne, Australia, which halved water use during a decade-plus dry spell with no new rate hikes
This summer, surfers and swimmers will risk more than sunburn — the ocean could make them sick. UCI researchers are testing the waters and working to improve the detection, identification, measurement and elimination of coastal pollutants.
