World Water Day

Via the UN comes a day for us to note the role of potable water and sanitation throughout the world.  We in New England are blessed with an abundance of freshwater, but other parts of the US are beginning to face real shortages where competing interests are clashing. More posts to come on particulars.

At the world level comes this note…..768 million people lack access to improved water sources & 2.5 billion have no improved sanitation.
