Water Finance begins with the story of the water business: why water is different from other businesses politically and socially. Then it will go into water's relationship with the city and it's ties in land development, urban water, household water, aesthetics, and landscaping. Water and wastewater will be highlighted as a utility business; water and food will be highlighted for emerging irrigation systems opportunities. Water for energy, play, fishing, damage control will be shown in detail and well as water in private water sectors and for capital.
