Water needs our help. We have the same amount of water today as we did when the Earth was formed. Constant use and pollution threaten our water resources. For example 272,155 kilograms of industrial pollutants are pouring into our water resources every day. Experts estimate that non-point pollution, that is agricultural and urban runoff combined with pollution by individuals, threatens our water resources more than industry.
Show you care by conserving water, protecting it from pollution, and getting involved in drinking water issues in your local community.
For more information on how you can conserve water, please click on the links below.
We can practice water conservation actions at home, at work, at school, and in any public place. We all have the opportunity to make positive decisions everyday that affect drinking water. For example, whenever we notice a dripping faucet or see a sprinkler operating on a rainy day, we have an opportunity to conserve water by stopping the waste. We can also conserve water by buying recycled paper products. We can help protect our water sources by refusing to buy and use toxic cleaners and fertilizers. By attending public meetings, we can voice our concerns. Use our water conservation tips and pamphlets to conserve water, protect it from pollution, or get involved in drinking water issues in our communities, we're giving drinking water the hand it deserves.
