Water is our most valuable resource. The most abundant substance on earth, water covers about three-quarters of our planet. Huge quantities are stored in our oceans, frozen in glaciers and trapped in underground rock formations.
Water is essential to life. More than two-thirds of our bodies are made up of water. It's the main substance found in all living things.
And water is also an economic resource. It costs money to get water to and from your home. The amount of water you use directly impacts how much you have to pay for it.
Protecting our water is one of the most important jobs we have. We need water supplies that are: 1) large enough to meet the demand for water, and 2) clean and safe from pollutants and chemicals.
Water utilities like Easton Suburban Water Authority, as well as other concerned groups, are working to safeguard our precious water supplies. But we can't do it alone. Everyone uses water and has a responsibility to help protect and conserve water so that generations to come will have as ample a supply of fresh, clean water as we do today.
