How is Source Water Affected?

There are several factors that can have potential negative impacts to our source water. Various human activities, land-use practices, natural contaminants, climate change and other factors can be detrimental to quality and quantity of our precious water source.

Since most of the water we use is recycled through the natural water cycle, any one of the negative impacts can directly influence the quantity and quality of our water sources that are interconnected through this hydrologic cycle.
