Most people tend to take coastal areas for granted, but, if steps are not taken now to improve the quality of the water from the mountains to the coast, it may someday be unfit for human use. Following a statement of the reasons for such concern are 13 chapters discussing various aspects of water conservation. Chapter titles include: (1) "Erosion Control"; (2) "Check Your Soil"; (3) "Drainage"; (4) "Septic Systems"; (5) "Pavement"; (6) "Landscaping"; (7) "Lawns"; (8) "Gardening"; (9) "Pesticides"; (10) "Household Chemicals"; (11) "Water Conservation"; (12) "Recreation"; and (13) "Community Action." Each chapter contains background information and a list of things that can be done locally to help improve the situation. A list of 15 additional sources of information is included at the end of this document. (CW)
