Why is it important to conserve water?

On the 'wet coast' of BC, it is easy to take our water supply for granted. In dry summer months, water consumption triples, even though there is much less water available. As the region grows, more people will be using the same limited resource. The quantity and quality of our water is directly impacted by human activity including the amount we use on a daily basis.
It is important that we all do our part to protect water for the future.
