August is…National Water Quality Month

Water is one of the most valuable resources we have on planet Earth. Without it we could not survive for more than a week or so. At least 60% of our body is made of it and every living cell we have needs it to keep functioning. Water acts as a lubricant for our joints, regulates our body temperature through sweating and respiration, and helps to flush waste.

Water also quenches our thirst, bathes our body, puts out fires, is invaluable in cooking and cleaning, and provides a home for sea life. It offers us playtime opportunities in the pool, at the beach, lake, or what have you. Swimming, boating, snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, surf boarding, etc., water delivers. In colder temperatures, water freezes and allows us to enjoy a variety of winter activities including: building snowmen, skiing, snowmobiling, and much more.
