Why Is Saving Water Important?
I can tell you that the water supply is rotative, meaning that we take water and put it back into the environment a little bit dirty, but back nonetheless.
Across the world, our growing population is putting stress on available water supplies.
In my the U.S. alone, between 1950 and 2000, our population nearly doubled, while the public demand for water more than tripled!
Americans now use an average of 100 gallons of water each day—enough to fill 1,600 drinking glasses! This is a very low estimate!
This increased demand has put additional stress on water supplies and distribution systems, threatening both human health and the environment.
There’s a reason that water has become a national priority.
A recent government survey showed at least 36 states are anticipating local, regional, or statewide water shortages by 2023.
But I am not an alarmist, by using water more efficiently, making sure that we put it back into the environment cleaner from contaminants, we can help preserve water supplies for future generations, even saving money, and protecting the environment as we do it.
