Last year, I began experimenting with a sort-of-weekly (except when it’s not) emailed water newsletter. I’ve got a few reasons for doing it:

- Marketing! I’m going to have a book to sell soon, and a self-selected mailing list seemed like it might be useful.
I never really advertised it, but now I am. You can see the latest issue here, and sign up like so:
I’ve been hired to do some freelance research for the attorney of an Alabama municipal water works board that is facing hostile takeover by suburban Republicans who are eager to exploit the utility’ s for-profit potential. I’m especially interested in how national commercial out-sourcing initiatives affect civic water utilities.
