Protecting our water is one of the most important jobs we have. The amount of water on earth today is the same amount of water that was available yesterday, and the same amount that will be available in the future. For 3 billion years, Earth has been using, cleaning and then reusing its water again and again.

Daily water consumption within the United States is a little more than 37 billion gallons. That means each person in the United States uses about 150 gallons of water each day for cooking, bathing, flushing toilets, laundry, shaving, brushing teeth, washing dishes and landscaping. For some areas of the country, such as in the Northeast, individual water needs are easily met because freshwater is plentiful. However, in other parts of the United States, such as the western states, which include large areas of desert, supplies of freshwater are limited.
