CELEBRATING NATIONAL WATER QUALITY MONTH
Established in 2005 by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and supported by the United Nations, National Water Quality Month was designed to promote conservation efforts for our natural water sources. The goal was to start the conversation within households regarding simple steps each can take to protect and preserve our water resources, thereby creating greater awareness on a local, state, and federal level (National Water Quality Month).
Surrounded by rivers, tributaries, streams, lakes, and ponds in the St. Croix River Valley, we are lucky to have access to pristine natural resources and safe drinking water. Preserving these resources both locally and globally is imperative for the health and well-being of our Earth and its future generations.
Each day, each of us can take steps to make a difference. For more information and ways you can make simple changes to save our precious waters, visit the links below!
