It’s been nearly fifty years since Congress passed the Clean Water Act (1972), bringing awareness to pollution and its impact on not only the water we drink, but on bodies of water and the water below the ground that affect the environment overall.
While cleaning up visible pollution from beaches, lakes, rivers, and streams is helpful, much of the pollution in today’s water supply comes from sources we don’t see – and may not even be aware of.
Here are a few ways individuals can make small changes that make a big difference in water quality:
Each Windsong home and community is located within easy driving distance of parks, lakes, and rivers; and many Windsong communities have water features, including creeks or ponds, as part of their neighborhoods. Celebrate Water Quality Month by taking note of your habits and helping to educate others in your community, and continue your environment-friendly habits all year long.
