4. British Columbia seems to have lots of water, why is water conservation important?

The blunt truth is that anyone who believes that there is an endless and/or replenishable supply of freshwater available is wrong. It is not an endlessly renewable resource and we are depleting it at an unprecedented rate. Aquifers are drying up and huge bodies of water are rapidly shrinking.  While the actual volume of water on the earth does not change, where it migrates to, how it is stored and quality levels are all subject to change and result in water crises around the world.

Freshwater sources such at The Great Lakes which holds almost 20% of the worlds supply are being looked at with envy and anticipation by countries around the world, particularly our neighbour to the south.

Globally, less than 2% of the world’s water store is fresh water – to quench the thirst of 6 billion people. And according to the International Food Policy Research Institute, by 2020, an additional 2 billion people will be competing for this shrinking resource.
