Water is our number one natural resource! Having clean, healthy rivers benefits humans, wildlife and our quality of life.

Can you imagine a day without water? As a reminder of the importance of water, we are calling attention to a national campaign, now in its seventh year. Imagine a day without water is celebrated on October 21 and is a reminder of how crucial water is for so many aspects of our lives.


Consider this: What if you had no water to drink, or wash your hands with. No water to shower, flush the toilet, or do laundry. Hospitals would close without water. Firefighters couldn't put out fires and farmers couldn't water their crops. Disease would spread.

Although we’ve had some rain in the last few weeks, this past summer has been fraught with hotter temperatures, drought and wildfires in some parts of the state. We may need to rethink the ways we use water and how we can protect it.

How water savvy are you? Can you answer the questions in our poll?
