How YOU can help save clean water

At least 117 million Americans get drinking water from rain-dependent, headwater, or seasonal streams. We also use 31% of our fresh water supply. You can help lower this number by turning off water faucets while not in use,check for water leaks in your home, use water saving faucets and shower heads, and use your dishwasher and washing machine only when it is full. This can help more than you think.

Only 3% of Earth's water is fresh. But only 1% is in liquid state. With about 7 billion water consumers, and all living things that need water, how can we survive with such a limited supply? It's important to protect our water source from diseases and bacteria. Who helps protect clean water?

The water cycle is the continuous journey that a water droplet takes.This cycle can help because this is how our water can become pure again. When water evaporates, or rises into the air, the water/steam leaves all of its dirt behind. This is also the same in sublimation and transpiration. Sublimation is when solid water becomes a gas without turning into a liquid. It also takes just pure water to the sky. Transpiration is when plants release water into the air through stomata. This also is released as pure water.Our water is 6.4 billion years old. Without the water cycle, how would the water become safe to drink naturally?

There are several acts that protect small areas of land for their water. But the two most efficiect acts are the Clean Water Act(CWA), and the Safe Drinking Water Act(SDWA).The Clean Water Act was created in 1972 and is celebrating 40 years of hard work this year. The Safe Drinking Water Act helps protect the quality of the United State's drinking water.
