Water Resources Directory

Water is a basic building block and necessity for all life. It is essential for agricultural, industrial, and household use for basic human health and economic development. Caring for water and water systems is vital to make sure we have enough to use to drink, grow crops, support fishing, support tourism, and mitigate storm and drought damage. 

To support our life, health, and economy, we need a healthy water system from watershed, to marsh to stream to river to estuary to ocean.  

Water is a finite resource. Use too much of it in one place, or pollute a source in another, and there is not enough for others downstream.  

We can work with resilient natural systems to make this happen or we can attempt to replicate their function through artificial means. By looking at this issue through the lens of One Health – we can deliver solutions that are effective for people, animals, and nature.
