USGS WATER CYCLE DIAGRAM (In 60 Languages)

Did you know our Earth's water is always in movement?  The natural water cycle is also known as the hydrologic cycle which wastewater resource recovery is an important part of.  We encourage you to check out the United States Geological Society's Earth's website for information about how the continuous movement of water on, above, and below the surface of the Earth helps our very existence.  As a "cycle," there is no beginning or end.  Water can change states among liquid, vapor, and ice at various places in the water cycle, with these processes happening in the blink of any eye and over millions of years.

WATER CONSERVATION

More efficient water use begins with each of us in our homes, schools, workplaces, and public spaces.  Using less water enables us to conserve fuel and reduce the pollution generated by burning fuel and treating water with chemicals.  Taking these and other steps - and encouraging others to do so - makes good economic, as well as environmental sense.
