How important is water?
Why do we need to conserve it and how does conservation
Our bodies don’t work without it. Our
crops don’t grow. Our gardens don’t bloom. Our fish
don’t swim. Our pets don't thrive. Our industries and
communities can’t grow and expand. In fact, just about
everything we do in our daily lives -- directly or
indirectly-- depends upon water.
The earth is largely covered by water.
But the truth is, only about 2% of that water is
drinkable. And, with a constantly growing population,
that small amount of water is being shared by more and
more people, as well as having to supply all of the
water needed for agriculture, manufacturing, power
generation, our cities and neighborhoods, too.
We have taken our precious water
supplies for granted...for too long. Now, water --
quantity and quality -- is a global issue. That's why we
have to learn to be better stewards of this finite
resource...and learn to make informed decisions about
how we use it.
Every time we turn on the faucet...we
need to ask ourselves, "Is it worth the water?"
