Water is Crucial For Life
How important is water? Why do we need to conserve it and how does conservation benefit us?
Crops won't grow
Fish and pets would die
Gardens won't bloom
Industries and communities can't grow and expand
Our bodies won't work
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 that 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, and our cities and neighborhoods.
We have taken our precious water supplies for granted for too long. Now, water, both 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.
Take The Pledge To Conserve Our Water
For those who are interested, the city will be pleased to provide you

stewardship, we will install a free sign in your yard that expresses
your efforts for conserving water and sharing the importance of water
