can I do every day to make a difference?
"We all live downstream" is an expression
which reminds us
Given that many key environmental issues are connected to water and yet we often take water for granted in our lives, these are important questions to explore.
In this section of the BASIN website, we examine a variety of indicators relating to community and environmental health that have to do with water in the Boulder area, including the environmental indicators put together by the Boulder County Healthy Communities Initiative (BCHCI) and the EPA's Index of Watershed Indicators. We also examine the water quality data available on the BASIN website to look for important indicators of stream health, and water consumption data from recent studies conducted on domestic water use in the region.
Finally, we look at things we can do in our everday lives to become more "waterwise" and environmentally aware.
