    Water resource management

    Apologies for the late reply - was getting all sorted out for first day of classes! I will start by saying that a lot of what @Badboi(OD) has said pretty much echoes what I would input, especially the discussions of very basic weather patterns and how that affects multiple things - hydrology and water management being one of them. Seasonal variability in precipitation and temperature has a very obvious effect on the amount of water that is in a watershed. Badboi has elaborated really well on each of these topics- I have nothing amazing to further add. I would also like to continue to point out that seasonal variability and unexpected changes to predicted wet/dry seasons have a pretty detrimental impact on both water sustainability and agriculture. An example from the drier spectrum would be California as of late - being in a drought stage for the last few years has had major impacts ranging from crop loss to uncontrollable wildfires damaging the land (that opens a whole other can of worms to discuss trouble in terms of agriculture). California relies heavily on snow pack replenishment as a way to sustain the watersheds and keep the heavily water reliant state on its feet - that hasn't been happening for a good bit of time now. An example from the extremely wet side would be NC, where we have had flooding rains through much of the late summer/fall seasons, plus a hurricane - ultimately damaging landscape, flooding crops, and killing as little as hundreds to as many as millions of various different animals that are detrimental to the economy here. I have nothing further to add to question two (damnit badboi). For question three, my mind would automatically look at the Great Lakes as the main source of water for much of Michigan's water. I was actually unaware of the extensive groundwater use for agriculture within my home state, so this is rather intriguing. In terms of protecting such valuable resources, I think there are good starts in terms of regulating what humans put into water, but there could be better enforcings and a more in depth look at what is deemed as "safe" for water and how we handle toxics. For this, I could elaborate further on from my Hydro class, but yah girl needs more time to investigate her resources. A lot of my "go-to" investigation sites for sources are.. uh.. blocked currently. I am unsure if you have a timeline for these questions - but I'll happily edit as I go about my research business. This is a fun topic :3

    Water resource management

    Ironically, I just finished a hydrology/hydrogeology course last semester.. On top of my met courses. And am from MI so may be biased. I will provide my thoughts once I finish driving back to campus. @Badboi(OD), just want to mention how hype I was to be considered a good source.. Small things (thank you)

      Moving is always so stressful.  Just take time to breathe and be nice to yourself.

    3. Terra


      No matter where you go you'll still have OD. At least that part should always feel normal and familiar.

    Plans for New Season?

    Helloooo I was wondering if there were any plans or such for the new season that is coming out? I see that the overall forums and Discord activity of the division has diminished... trying to get back into the guild in game. Is the division still active?

    Best wishes to you all ^^ The decision is not a fun one to make - at least you have another game to continue to play with folks here! Happy gaming ~

      Ahh, I just figured I'd ask because holiday season is fast approaching after next week - didn't know if it was just not being done or if it was forgotten. 

    2. Terra


      Just waiting on a couple confirmations but will probably be on the 30th just so it doesn't interfere with the holiday season for people.

    3. TypeReaL(OD)


      Just take the month off 😄 everyones gonna be so hungover during the holidays.. well not me but the majority of people that get in the holiday spirit aside from terra trying to stab me that still no matter how you cut it is attempted murder. remember what happened last year @Aerineth(OD) got so drunk the next 3 days he kept sending me omnious messages like type Why do you wash counter clock wise in the shower ....? Type someone shit in the officers break room and winks at me cmon man ! well that went off on a tangent but how bout we cancel it do this impending doom I have forecast guess @MelodicRose(OD) isnt the only one with predictions !
