Internet "lists" or "mailing groups" are topical electronic forums where list subscribers may post announcements, participate in discussions and pose and answer questions. These forums cover a vast array of topics. This is a listing of electronic discussion lists that are primarily concerned with topics related to water resources. For the sake of brevity and focus, the listing does not include the many other environmentally oriented lists that may periodically address water resource issues.

Brief instructions for subscribing to lists are given at the end of this document. For an overview of mailing lists and related tools, see Discussion Groups on the LISWiki.

If you know of any additions, deletions, or corrections that should be made to this listing, please send the information to wqic@ars.usda.gov.
