by Andrew Ciccone October 19, 2017

Everyone has a direct impact on our local water supply. Our actions affect the quality and the amount of water we use. Without fresh water you will die in just a few days.  Plain and simple, water equals life. #waterislife

For the most part, water is a renewable resource. Water re-use is not a new concept to most of us. Water can be treated to potable standards. New ways of treating water are being developed. That’s good news for us all.

TOP 10 REASONS WHY WATER NEEDS TO BE PROTECTED
Here are 10 things you can do to help protect our water quality and conserve water.

  1. Using less water keeps saves money. By utilizing basic water conservation techniques you are able to save thousands of gallons of water each year.  Do the math, using less water means you spend less money.

  2. Protecting our natural ecosystems is critical for protecting endangered species. The variety of plants, animals, and other living things can be negatively impacted by habitat loss and degradation. Start using non-toxic household products and stop using pesticides or chemical fertilizers. They pose a serious threat to your health and safety and they pollute both ground and surface water. 

  3. Human activity, climate change, and pollution all affect the planet’s biodiversity. Without food to eat, water to drink, air to breathe, and materials to provide shelter, unexpected consequences can upset the delicate balance of life. The greater the diversity of life, the greater the opportunity for discoveries that make our world a much better place.

  4. Conserving water can also save energy.  In order to pump water, energy is required. Saving water uses less energy, which reduces our carbon footprint. Plant native plants that do not require much water also helps save our precious supplies. This helps America become more energy independent.

  5. A clean environment is essential for healthy living. Don’t put anything except water down storm drains. Never dispose unwanted or out-of-date medicines down the drain. Chemicals and other toxic pollutants pour into rivers and streams each time it rains. These contaminants and toxins have a harmful impact on our health. The oceans, streams and lakes that are the lifeblood of our planet.

  6. The water crisis is a health crisis. Access to clean water and basic sanitation can save lives all over the world. Diseases from dirty water kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.

  7. Education. Clean water helps keep kids in school, especially girls. Less time collecting water means more time in class. Help break the cycle of poverty.

  8. Access to clean water gives communities more time to grow food, earn an income, and go to school. All of which fight poverty.

  9. Become an advocate for water. Spread the word. Talk to your neighbors about how they can help and work with your local elected officials to ensure that harmful toxins are not being introduced to the water supply. Attend your local water district meeting and tell your political leaders and water agencies to support local, state, and national policies that conserve water and stop contamination.

  10. Keep informed. Review your annual drinking water quality report from your local water providers. Make sure you understand where, how and who is managing your water.

Do more with less. Water conservation can help cut your water usage by more than half. A little extra effort each day will make a difference. Think about how much water you use and what you use water for. By taking these actions, you can help ensure that we have enough water to meet the needs of all for generations to come.
