Water. You drink it. You grow food in it. You flush your toilets with it. Without water you can't live. Without clean water you can't live a healthy life. From agriculture to manufacturing, most sectors of our economy rely on water. Without water, our economy would grind to a halt.
Yet most of us take water for granted. When our water is at risk, the nation is at risk. Nature provides water but we have to take steps to protect it. In this region, rain soaks through the ground into a large aquifer that stores groundwater which is used for drinking. The water in our rivers and the aquifer interact, so it's important to protect both from pollution.
