'Value Of Water' Safeguards Our Most Precious Resource


Though it's something that most of us rarely think about, water is easily the most vital resource that we have on this planet. Sadly, people are so accustomed to having easy, cheap access to clean running water that they end up taking it for granted.

In reality, water is a resource in dire need of protection. America's water processing infrastructure is badly aging, and in need of a wholesale upgrade. To call attention to this problem, five years ago the people at The Value of Water created Imagine a Day Without Water, which was celebrated this year on October 23rd. The org uses the annual event to raise awareness, and to urge people to consider how even a single day without water would affect their lives.

The movement continues to grow, and more than 1,000 groups have signed up to participate this year–from breweries and botanical gardens to municipal utilities. To read more about this unique and essential nonprofit, read this week's message from Value of Water Director Radhika Fox.
