Dear Deeply Readers,

Welcome to the archives of Water Deeply. While we paused regular publication of the site on November 1, 2018, we are happy to serve as an ongoing public resource on water resilience. We hope you’ll enjoy the reporting and analysis that was produced by our dedicated community of editors and contributors.

We continue to produce events and special projects while we explore where the on-site journalism goes next. If you’d like to reach us with feedback or ideas for collaboration you can do so at [email protected].

Water Deeply Is Expanding to Cover Water Issues Across the West

We’re growing our coverage of crucial water issues to include states across the American West, with a continued focus on California and the Colorado River Basin states.

For the past two years we’ve covered water issues throughout California. With this focus we strove to bring a new kind of journalistic rigor and depth to the coverage of the state’s drought, floods, environmental issues, innovation and more. We can’t thank this community enough and we are excited to let you know that we are expanding our coverage.

Beginning now, Water Deeply is bringing that same rigor and depth of coverage to water issues across the American West.

Water doesn’t obey state lines, and neither should its coverage. We’ve already delved into this topic area, as when we told you about Utah’s Bear River dam project or how President Trump’s proposed border wall could affect Western rivers or when we highlighted one of the coolest houses in Oregon that’s off the water grid. Now we will be able to cover even more water issues throughout the West, with a special focus on the Colorado River, which is a critical water source for millions of in the region, including California.

We will connect with new water experts, stakeholders and researchers across the American West. This expansion gives us the flexibility to cover more water issues that impact more people, and with the same focus that we have brought to water in California.

If you have any questions, comments, or water-news tips, let us know. And thank you for your continued support.
