Sustainability Planning and Water Management


It is an old saying, “You never miss the water until the well goes dry“. In many parts of the world, water is plentiful and safe. However, there are many places where water is scarce and not safe. 97.5% is salt water, and the rest of the water isn’t always accessible or drinkable.

Scientists tell us that less than 1% of the world’s water supply is drinkable or potable. A good portion of that water is underground, in snow and ice, or in lakes.
