The resource is an index to technical and scientific literature on water-related topics including conservation, pollution, use, etc. of water resources. Originally known as "Selected Water Resources Abstracts" when created by the United States Geological Survey, it was then managed by Cambridge Scientific Abstracts (CSA) and then ProQuest. Now it's available as part of the "Agricultural & Environmental Sciences Database" while not searchable with other resources except in that resource as a whole.

As with other ProQuest databases, it can be searched by simple keyword or using multiple fields (such as document title, author, and subject heading) and limiters (such as source type, document type, and language) in the Advanced Search.

Laurier Library has subscribed to this for several years, now as part of the the "Agricultural & Environmental Science Database" and previously as part of the "Biological Sciences" collection.
