Did You Know?

Polluted stormwater runoff containing automotive oil and grease, agricultural chemicals and waste, and residential lawn chemicals; salination from rising sea levels; industrial discharges; pouring unused medications or household chemicals down the drain; failed septic systems and sewage overflows; illegal dumping; and oil and gas production are just a few of the things that can polute surface water and groundwater, making it toxic to plants and animals as well as humans.  The scarcity of drinking water around the world is making potable (drinking) water the oil or gold of the future, which nations will go to war to sieze or protect.  The Southwest is experincing record droughts that could make life in parts of Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, and Texas impossible.  The Ogallala Acquifer that irrigates the the nation's agricultural heartland took millions of years to form and is being drained in a matter of decades.  Even cities like Atlanta are fighting legal battles with neighboring cities such as Chatanooga over water rights.  New England's abundance of clean water is a precious natural resource that can't be taken for granted, and if we protect it, the nation and the world will turn to us with envy when they have squandered theirs or built beyond the ability of their water supplies to sustain them.  Think twice before you carelessly pollute this precious resource.
