May I have a glass of water please? Will you please wash the dishes, the clothes, yourself! Water is something we take for granted and we are so fortunate to live in a country where access to clean, drinkable water is so routine we don’t give it a second thought.
Until we don’t. Until we don’t have access to safe water or clean water or maybe water at all. Infrastructure demises in water delivery systems, contamination from floods, pipe breakage or other events or water supplies running low from droughts or a myriad of other occurrences affect access to water. We can’t live without water. It truly is vital to our very survival.
Using water wisely on all levels will help preserve the access to water so vital to us. Water is truly remarkable in both its requirement for living beings and things as well as its power and destructive capability. Using water wisely can mean conservation and efficient use both in times of plenty and lack.
Some tips from the podcast on water conservation. 1) When shaving….don’t let the water run. 2) When brushing your teeth…don’t let the water run. 3) If faucets, toilets, or shower heads need to be replaced, use a low-flow replacement. For a quick reference for low water use fixtures, just look for the EPA’s WaterSense label. Just being aware of our water use and wasting less, will get each of us adding our drop to the bucket!
