About 52 percent of the United States are experiencing moderate or worse drought. Droughts can have significant environmental, agricultural, health, economic and social consequences. For example, subsistence farmers are more likely to migrate during drought because they do not have alternative food sources. Areas with populations that depend on water sources as a major food source are more vulnerable to famine. Drought can also reduce water quality, because lower water flows reduce dilution of pollutants and increase contamination of remaining water sources. We can lose a lot of water doing simple everyday tasks. Did you know that turning off the water while you brush your teeth can save more than 100 gallons of water a month? Just shutting off the faucet or fixing a leak can save a lot of water.
