Water is essential to survival and as the world’s population grows, the demand for water will increase. For many parts of the world, access to clean water is already a problem. And for those cities or countries that have access to clean water, some are finding that they’re using their water much faster than it can be naturally replaced. So, how worried are you about your town or city running out of water? What should be done to prevent that? Support your answer with evidence.
Elevate the discussion with a Make & Share. Create an infographic describing how your household would use 13 gallons of water per day, like families in Capetown, South Africa, had to do a few years ago. Be sure to save at least one gallon per person for drinking water.
