Water Quality

Approximately 70% of the human body is made up of water, and its unique chemical and physical properties are essential to our survival. Without water, basic physical processes would be impossible. Water composes an environment that sustains and nurtures plants, animals and humans. This is why maintaining and preserving clean water is as important to us as it is to you, and water education and community involvement are an important part of understanding this this vital resource.
