Stop for a moment and think about the many times each day you rely on clean water. Think how frequently you turn the knob on a faucet, flush the toilet, or use water to cook or clean — and drink. Now imagine an entire day in which clean water was unavailable to you. Think of the difficulties just to take care of yourself and your family.
By taking personal responsibility for the quality of our lakes and streams, and in particular Lake Champlain, we can ensure that days without swimmable, fishable and drinkable water remain limited.
