Have you ever stopped to think about how important water is? It is a necessity to all living things but honestly, sometimes we take water for granted. Water is used in agriculture for livestock, to grow our food and to grow plants like cotton to make our clothing. Water is necessary in manufacturing the products we use, from shampoo to cars to carpet. Here in Georgia we use water to generate much of our power through hydroelectric power plants. In our communities we use water for recreation, landscaping and fire fighting. And don’t forget that water provides habitat for many species of animals. Water is our most precious natural resource.
This website will help you discover ways you can make a positive impact in your watershed and your community through water conservation and water source protection. Explore the following links to learn about some of the great careers in the water industry and find resources on scholarship and internships in Georgia. We invite you to make a difference in the future of Georgia’s water!
| Help Conserve Our Water - What can you do to conserve water?|
Saving water is as easy as turning off a faucet! Here are six simple things you can do at home:
1. Don't keep the water running while you're brushing your teeth.
2. Take shorter showers. Make it a game. Keep an egg timer in the bathroom and see who can get their showers down to three minutes.
(And still get clean!)
3. Help your mom or dad fix the dripping faucet. Did you know that it can waste 20 gallons of water a day?
4. Help your dad install a water-saving shower head. In addition to the water it saves, it also saves the fuel that would have been used to
heat up the extra hot water. And that reduces pollution.
5. Fill a gallon plastic bottle with water and place it in your toilet tank. (The part in the back!) It will take up the same space as the water
usually does, but in a year, it will keep 5,000 gallons of water from going down the drain.
