As the world population grows, we are forced by circumstances we have created to face the realization of our resources’ limitations. Most of us in the United States have always been fortunate enough to have had enough of whatever we needed, and whatever we wanted. When something we like breaks or wears out, we throw it away and buy a new one, and often we don't even try to fix the problem. We neglect basic maintenance until we damage our belongings beyond repair and we expect that we will always have enough. But some things are beyond our control, beyond our power or financial ability to replace or repair. Our water supply is one of these. Without concern, without attention, without preventive maintenance and reclamation, our water supply will not be able to support the needs of the future.
