What do you know about your water?

Posted on June 10, 2008 by ELCA World Hunger

Last week I wrote about water, and how I had been unusually conscious of it recently. Hence it was ironic that I opened a publication from the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee a few days ago that asked a series of questions about my water awareness. I could answer some of them, but not all. How about you?

  • Where does you water come from?
  • Is your water safe?
  • Who makes decisions about the water in your community?
  • Does everyone pay the same for water and sewage in your community?
  • What happens in your community if a family cannot pay its water bill?
  • Does your water or sewage provider have a plan for emergencies or rationing due to climate change?

If you know the answers, are you comfortable with them?
