Oct 2013 List of Reports on Water and Related Issues

This continues my quasi-regular updates on the never-ending stream of released reports on water and related issues that I come across through e-mail, twitter, and any number of outlets. You can check out the previous list, posted at the beginning of October, as well as prior lists for even more informative reading. If you know of a report that I have not listed, please e-mail me with a title and link!
