Water Pollution Prevention and Conservation
Water is a resource that has many uses, including recreational, transportation, hydroelectric power,
agricultural, domestic, industrial, and commercial uses. Water also supports all forms of life and affects our
health, lifestyle, and economic well being. As individuals, we use water for sanitation, drinking, and many
other human needs, and we pay for the public water utilities that provide water.
This website has a lot of information about water pollution prevention and conservation, and what we can do to help.

My Ecological Footprint
The Ecological Footprint Quiz estimates the area of land and ocean required to support your consumption of food, goods, services, housing, and energy and assimilate your wastes. Your ecological footprint is expressed in "global hectares" (gha) or "global acres" (ga), which are standardized units that take into account the differences in biological productivity of various ecosystems impacted by your consumption activities. Your footprint is broken down into four consumption categories: carbon (home energy use and transportation), food, housing, and goods and services. Your footprint is also broken down into four ecosystem types or biomes: cropland, pastureland, forestland, and marine fisheries.
This quiz tells you how many resources you are using each day, and the impact of your daily life.
