What’s Your Water IQ?
Water is our most precious natural resource—without it, all life would perish. Water is also incredibly fragile and vulnerable to many threats, from various sources of pollution to climate change. Water’s complex character has inspired artists, ignited political wars, and influenced the growth of cities. Access to water ranges from a simple twist of a spigot for some people to the time-consuming process of hauling buckets of water for others. We invite you to examine your relationship with water. Every drop counts.
The Watershed believes that protecting water ultimately depends on the vigilance and actions of an informed public. We are therefore committed to a project that we call raising Water IQ. We believe that everyone should know certain basic facts about water, including where your drinking water comes from and how we can better protect water.
