Are You Water Literate?

States such as Colorado are gearing up to deal with the possibility of water shortages in the near future. An article last week from Colorado Public Radio’s website talked about this issue and what they are doing to combat it. You can check out the article here.

In the article, a statement is made about the water literacy of the American population. The truth is, most people are water illiterate when it comes to where your water comes from and what it’s being used for.

According to the article, most water usage isn’t coming from big cities, but actually agriculture. The easiest way to decrease water shortages with the least negative impact on the environment, they claim, is through reductions in water usage from agriculture and industry. Urban measures will require costly infrastructure to be built such as pipelines, reservoirs, etc.

12 states use the bulk of the water in the United States, and Colorado is one of them. Interestingly, water use is the lowest it’s been in the last 45 years, but states such as Colorado unfortunately may soon learn what affect drought conditions have on statewide agricultural and industrial systems.

When it comes to in-house filtered water, Vero water is quickly becoming the name in clean, refreshing and cost effective commercial and personal hydration. Many of the best restaurants and hospitality groups in the United States agree. Vero not only saves their clients money, but also provides them with a technologically superior, environmentally aware and sophisticated water bottling system.
