RESOURCE - What's Up With Our Nation's Waters?
Do you know what percentage of our nation's waters are clean, what  pollutes the waters that aren't, and what you can do to help?  EPA has produced a 24-page booklet, designed primarily for children aged 10 to15, that presents key findings of the National Water Quality Inventory in an easy-to-read format.  The booklet includes projects for school or for fun, a water quiz, a glossary, and a list of resources for more information.  What's Up With Our Nation's Waters? can be viewed at www.epa.gov/owow/monitoring/nationswaters/waters.pdf.
It is also available in hard copy from EPA's National Service Center for Environmental Publications at 1-800-490-9198; please include the  publication number when ordering: EPA 841-F-00-005.
