What is really in your water?

Water is essential to life. People can live over a month with out food, but only survive a few days with out water. Because 97% of the Earths water is salt water, we must make more effort to take care of the 3% of the water we can drink.

The most dependable water sources in America are the rivers and lakes that surround our cities. Community water systems recive water from two places surface water and ground water.

In Ethiopia more efforts are being made to have clean water avilable to people. The water project orginzation started by digging up wells so that people no longer have to make hand made wells. Although hand made wells can save a lot of money, they are very dangerous to build and can easily be contaminated when left uncovered.

For some countries even the cleanest water is still contaminated. Although the water in India is thought to be "safe" World Bank estimates that 21% of India's diseases come from polluted water. Polluted water also causes bad hygiene. Everyday 1,600 people die in India from diarrhea.

Although many countries have found ways to get safe water to use, some countries haven't been as fortunate. In Bangladesh, population 166 million, 27.9 million people lack safe water. When people lack access to a water well, they seek other sources of drinking water, usually unprotected water sources such as ponds, ditches or walking to distant wells. Even if you live where water is safe to drink, you can practice better habits by recycling. Spreading the awareness about countries like Bangladesh, and maybe even volunteering money and time to building more water wells would also make a difference.
