WATER CONSERVATIONKey to Colorado’s Future
Water Is More Scarce Than You Think
It’s been said that water is the second-most important natural resource for human existence, behind only air, but Colorado’s got plenty of air even if it might not always seem like it in the high country. That’s not the case with water, which is a finite resource in our semi-arid state. We need it for hydration, agriculture, recreation, plant and animal species survival, business, cleanliness, and the clincher – beer – yet trends show that we’re in some danger of water supply not keeping up with future demand without practicing serious conservation. This is not meant as a call for alarm, but do consider it a call to action.
