Climate change is transforming how we think about water. As the climate warms and weather patterns become more extreme, solutions to water pollution are increasingly important. The likelihood of more floods and droughts in the future makes it imperative that we transform current water systems to be more resilient.
Extreme weather patterns, along with increased consumption and contaminant levels, are wreaking havoc on our water supply. From household drinking water and agriculture to energy and transportation, we require a vast amount of water to make everyday events and lifestyles possible.
However, water pollution problems are only getting worse as the effects of climate change transform our planet. Fortunately, there are a few things we can do to mitigate these effects.
