Update: This give-away is now over. Winners have been selected and have been notified. Thanks for participating!
We’ve been doing this blog for roughly 6 months and this is our 100th post here at Hydraulically Inclined. We’re thankful for you, our readers, and we’ve enjoyed connecting with many of you. We’re excited about the next 6 months and beyond and we’ve got lots more planned and new authors to introduce. In celebration of our 100th post though and just to show our gratitude and thanks we have a nice little give-away drawing!
1st Prize: Kodak PlaySport HD Waterproof Pocket Video Camera: This camera can do HD video as well as take high quality 5MP still images and its size and weight make it perfect for the field. The PlaySport is also rugged and can handle the elements.
2nd Prize: Open-Channel Hydraulics by Ven Te Chow: This is the classic text, the standard in open channel hydraulics, an excellent reference for any hydraulic engineer, or anyone dealing with rivers for that matter.
3rd Prize: Cadillac Desert by Marc Reisner and Battling the Inland Sea by Robert Kelley: These are 2 fun and insightful reads. Cadillac Desert covers the progress and politics of the development of water infrastructure in the West while Battling the Inland Sea looks at the history surrounding the levee system in the Sacramento River Valley of northern California.
4th Prize: The Big Thirst by Charles Fishman and Water: The Epic Struggle for Wealth, Power, and Civilization by Steven Solomon: These are two more recent texts dealing with the priceless resource known as water and its significance over history, present day, and the coming future.
