Water Supply & Resources

Hydroelectric dam and reservoir (water suppy and resources)..This page displays a collection of environmental and sustainability (green) online videos about water supply and resources. Video topics include water quality, water conservation, drinking water, oceans, watersheds, aquifers, and creek restoration.

Implementing water resource plans that emphasize water conservation and clean water protection is an important part of environmental sustainability. Global warming, population growth, and inefficient use are taxing our global freshwater resources. Oceans and watersheds are also in jeopardy from development, pollution, and climate change. Water conservation, water efficiency, water reclamation, pollution prevention, land management, and habitat restoration will help us protect our water supply and water ecosystems.
