    This informative book on water is written without complex terminology and bureaucratic jargon for an eighth grader to understand it. The subtitle of the book is, “A citizen’s guide to new water”. It asks general public to be familiar with what is going on, which eventually empowers them to take action by participating in decisions and in policy making. The book is available at

    Drought front cover 1“There is a water crisis in California, and with the current drought and the strong possibility of climate change impacting our weather patterns, it’s time to reimagine solutions for solving this crisis.” Hasan says in the book. “This book offers a brief synopsis of the problem and how humans have contributed greatly to our water shortages. But beyond doomsday thinking, there are technological solutions that can solve the water shortage and help people feel empowered to participate in these solutions. From crisis to action, citizens, engineers, scientists, water managers, policy makers, politicians, everyone can participate by using some of these ideas to solve California’s water shortage problem.” he explains.
