“In our region, the Friends of the Verde River, and the Oak Creek Watershed Council are dedicated to preserving and improving our local water systems as part of the Verde Watershed. They have great tips on living a water wise life. They promote a sustainable water supply, clean water, healthy uplands and riparian forests, and supportive communities.
The water cycle is an apt model of sustainability. As we think of our dependence, use, and impact on all our resources that provide our food, clothing, shelter and transportation, we can appreciate our role in the critical balance between abundance and scarcity. It shows us that how we choose to use a valuable resource is important.”
