“Water, water everywhere…” Or is it? There is no more fresh water today than there ever was or ever will be. And while the amount of water will never change, the number of people relying on those water sources continues to grow every day, every year. Demand is quickly outpacing supply. While fresh water is a limited resource, we continue to use it as though its supply is endless. So it’s time rethink our water usage, every moment, every day. The Action Guide, lesson plans, videos, and related resources in this section will help you and your students to “Know Your Flow,” as you read about and understand the role that humans play in the water continuum, the processing of waste water and its return to the water cycle, and how to conduct a water efficiency audit in your school and/or home. Walk away with the tools needed to ACT on reducing, recycling, and rethinking your water usage.
