Our Mission: Watershed Conservation Authority

The goal of our organization is to promote and educate young Americans about the conservation and safe consumption of water.

Water Conservation

Water Conservation is all of our responsibilities. We must make informed and conscious decisions about our use and consumption of water.

Did you know that Americans consume more water per person than any other country in the world?

Why is water conservation important?

While it may seem like the earth has abundant water, the truth is that nearly all of life depends on freshwater, which covers only 1% of the earth’s surface.

Safe Consumption

The other important part of our mission is to educate people about the safe consumption of water.

A tragic reality in 2020 is that over 5 million people will die from contaminated water.

Many developing nations do not have abundant access to water filtration and purification systems and will need to be well-armed with the knowledge to survive this reality.

Many people believe that boiling water guarantees safety. While this is a good practice to kill off live bacteria and organisms, it does not remove large particles from the water, which can include lead and arsenic which can be deadly to humans.

Home Water Safety

Many people believe that so long as your drinking water is purified, you’re completely safe. Unfortunately, taking a shower, brushing your teeth or washing dishes with contaminated water can also lead to illness.

That’s why we also recommend all homes equip a whole house water filter to their homes. We recommend this water filter guide to find a certified filter that matches your budget.

Municipal Water Treatment

Our modern water treatment centers are a modern wonder. That said, it’s important to note that if things go wrong with your treatment center, millions of people can be affected.

In addition, it’s important to note that many Americans receive fluoride in their water supply for the purpose of fighting tooth decay.
