With fresh water, we grow our crops, cook our food, and nourish our bodies. Without it, we can’t survive. Even as we explore space, the first question about any planet is whether there is a presence of water.
Here on earth, many of us take water for granted. Turn on the tap, and there it is, ready to drink, cook, bathe, do the laundry, or water the lawn.
Yet there are too many places where it’s not nearly so simple. Places where it takes hours to bring home a precious jug of water from a well, where water is contaminated, and often the carrier of deadly diseases.
