World Water Day

Just a quick note that today is World Water Day.

It is still a reality that an estimated 1.1 billion people rely on unsafe drinking-water sources. Therefore the theme of World Water Day 2010 is focusing on raising awareness of water quality under the theme "Clean Water for a Healthy World". IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre offers a wide selection of documents looking at the different aspects of water quality such as water treatment, health and technology. This information is for instance, available via the IRC digital library, the Source Newsletter and on the IRC web site.

What are you doing to reduce the amount of water you use needlessly? What are you doing to positively impact the water quality in your neighbourhood? Or in another part of the world?

Dalhousie residence students are currently having a competition to reduce the amount of water they use by having shorter showers, turning off the taps while brushing their teeth, and taking advantage of low flow shower heads and dual flow toilets where they are available. Additionally, a public forum was held this afternoon on campus as well.

Celebrate World Water Day and start a habit that you can carry forward from today onward.
