Drinking Water







Water. We drink it. We use it to run our dishwashers and washing machines. We process and manufacture goods with it. We use it to grow our crops and feed our livestock. We use it to transport goods from one place to another. We swim in it, boat on it, and fish from it. And every living thing depends on it for survival. This section takes a look at all the ways we use water and how those uses affect water quality.
