4. British Columbia appears to have lots of water, why is water conservation important?

The blunt truth is that the belief that there is an endless supply of water, or that our freshwater supplies are  replenishable, is wrong. Freshwater resources cannot be replenished fast enough and we are depleting them at an unprecedented rate. Aquifers are drying up and surface sources are rapidly shrinking or disappearing.  While the actual volume of water on the earth does not change, the amount of freshwater specifically is changing and where that freshwater moves to, is stored and its quality levels are subject to change and result in water crises around the world.

Freshwater sources such at The Great Lakes which holds almost 20% of the worlds supply are being looked at with envy and anticipation by countries around the world, particularly our neighbour to the south.

Globally, less than 2% of the world’s water store is fresh water – to quench the thirst of 6 billion people. And according to the International Food Policy Research Institute, by 2020, an additional 2 billion people will be competing for this shrinking resource.
