Water is a finite resource. Water sustains human life. Here are 10 ways you can honor water as if your life depends on it (it does ).
1 – Learn how your watershed works. It’s a great
reminder of how our actions affect our water.
2 – Reduce pollution. Pick up dog waste
and litter. Don’t use harmful chemicals that will wash into storm drains.
3 – NEVER FLUSH chemicals or medicines down the drain. Properly dispose of
chemicals at Household Hazardous Waste
collections and medicine at local
4 – Avoid products
5 – Save water inside. See how much water
you use in everyday life with this Water Calculator, get conservation ideas
from Water Use It
Wisely, and use water-efficient appliances. And of course, never brush with
the water on.
6 –Save water outside. Install a rain barrel for
watering outdoor flowers and plants or plant a water-saving garden with help from Jersey Yards’ how-to guides.
8 – Learn something new.
Tapped and Blue
Gold are two great documentaries about the issues affecting our water today.
Story of Stuff’s
Story of Bottled Water is short and easy to share. You can also tour our Wastewater Treatment Facility to find out
what happens to water that goes down our sinks and toilets.
9 – Stay informed. Did you know that New Jersey has not released a revised water supply
plan since 1996?
That means we are using old
data to manage water in our state. Eeek. Learn
10 – Spread the word. Share what you’ve
learned using the hashtag #WorldWaterDay on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to
bring awareness to your family and friends about the importance of water.
