Or, as in the case of some of the University earlier this week, your taps don’t run and your toilets don’t flush.
To thank our students for their patience and understanding during the recent closures due to these utilities problems the University will be offering students a free bottle of water and cake today, on the ground floor of the Clifford Whitworth Library.
While you are in the Library enjoying your treats you may wonder what other great water resources we have. Here are a few:
Flood Estimation Handbook
The Flood Estimation Handbook and related software offer guidance on rainfall and river flood frequency estimation in the UK. Flood frequency estimates are required for the planning and assessment of flood defences, and the design of other structures such as bridges, culverts, and reservoir spillways. The five volumes are accompanied by software and digital data, which you can borrow from the Enquiry Desk for use in the Library. More information here.
Journal of Hydrology
The Journal of Hydrology publishes original research papers and comprehensive reviews in all the subfields of the hydrological sciences including water based management and policy issues that impact on economics and society. Available from 1995 onwards.
Applied Water Science
Applied Water Science explores water scarcity solutions from a holistic system oriented viewpoint. From the sustainable management of natural water resources to the development of the technologies and infrastructure for the production of clean fresh water from natural and waste water. Available from 2011 onwards.
Find market research reports, news items, product and company information about the water industry (or cake, or anything else for that matter) on Mintel.
Box of Broadcasts
Watch TV about water! BoB is a TV scheduling service allows you to record TV and radio programmes that are scheduled to be broadcast over the next seven days as well as retrieving programmes from the last seven days from a selected list of recorded channels.

Once you have logged in try searching for “water resources”.
These resources are, of course, just a drop in the ocean. Search SOLAR to see the huge range of works about water available to you.
