Newsletter #26 for May 24, 2011

IL - Watseka 1st Tower

Have a Happy Holiday Weekend

Though floods and tornadoes continue to impact communities across the country, we shared quite a bit on that last week. This week we're bringing you some lighter news to carry us all through this week and the Memorial Day holiday. We've brought back our favorite water tower to help get us in the spirit.

We're also all smiles here at SmallWaterSupply.org as well because it's summer! That means we have more students spending more time working hard to bring you the best of the water web. This summer, watch for guest blog posts and other fun goodies from our staff!
