Water is a precious resource in our environment.|
Growing populations and
ongoing droughts are squeezing
our water resources dry,
causing natural habitat degradation
and impacting our everyday use of water.
We have no choice but
to pay more attention
to how we are using water,
and how we may be wasting it.
We must bridge the gap between
our understanding of how
important water is to our survival
and what we can do to ensure
that we have an adequate supply
of clean water for years to come.
Below is a list of the many simple ways
you can take action and conserve water,
both inside and outside our homes.

* Try to do one thing each day to save water.
Don't worry if the savings are minimal.
Every drop counts,
and every person can make a difference.
* Be aware of and follow all water conservation and water shortage rules and restrictions that may be in effect in your area.
* Make sure your children are aware of the need to conserve water.

Water contamination is today's biggest problem
There are several types of contaminants in water,
such as particulates, organics, inorganics,
microorganisms and pyrogens.
In the past, people were mainly concerned with
ionic contaminants and measured ionic conductivity
or resistivity as a way to determine water purity.
Today people are more concerned with
particulates and microorganisms,
such as bacteria and gases
hat are dissolved in water.
Today we know, that even a few parts per billion
of water contamination are enough
to influence health in a human.
There are eight commonly used methods
to purify water:
