World Water Day

3/22/14 is World Water Day. How secure is your water? We need to protect and preserve our valuable sources of clean water, and create a sustainability plan to ensure it for our children’s children. When we look at the scarcity of water worldwide it makes our Mahomet Aquifer just that much more precious. This resource deserves every layer of protection we can devise. Conserve and protect this amazing, irreplaceable water source!
