Water is a very precious resource for humans and the environment, so it's important that we use it wisely. Luckily, we have Urban Utilities and Unitywater to help us learn about saving water!
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO SAVE WATER?
We all know that humans and animals need water, and that it is important in the environment... but why do we talk so much about saving water?
Water moves around the world through a process called the 'Water Cycle'. This explains how water journeys around the earth through processes like evaporation and condensation before returning to earth's water sources via rain and percolation. Check out this informative fact sheet from Unity Water to learn more about the Water Cycle!
The water cycle helps us to understand that water is a 'finite' resource, meaning that there is a limit to how much we can use... That's why it's so important for us to use it wisely! There are also droughts which occur when there is not enough water in local areas (although there may be lots of rain and flooding in other areas).
