In a world where everything we touch frequently changes, water is our constant. We’ve never stopped needing it to drink, to cook, to clean, to live. We’ll always need it for sanitation, for fire protection, for watering our lawns and washing our cars. It’s easy to take water for granted. And because so many do, we don't.
