EACS 114 - Water in Maine
In this course students broadly examine fresh water resources in Maine. They begin by exploring the geologic history that led to the formation of Maine's abundant hydrologic resources and then identify historic and current exploitation of water in the state. From bottled and tap water, to the ski and paper industries, and blueberry farming, they consider how resource exploitation impacts long-term sustainability in a water-rich state. They also discuss how state and federal water policy guides the use of water resources and debate how Maine should move forward with its resource management.
