Take the Pledge!

The Village of Shorewood has proclaimed this summer the Summer of Water Action. This is a time to learn and take action to help enjoy, protect and enhance our water resources.

Clean water is essential to all of us and countless other creatures, not to mention our economy and quality of life. Can you imagine not having water freely flowing from your tap, shower or garden hose? Or not being able to wash food, dishes or clothes whenever you’d like? We’re so fortunate to live in an area with high quality and abundant water. However, billions of people worldwide do not have access to safe water and worldwide drought is making this dire situation worse.

WHY? Although we live in water-rich region, we are not immune to disasters. Learn about the Aral Sea, a salty freshwater lake larger than Lake Michigan that nearly disappeared in less than 40 years in Eastern Europe due to excess irrigation, poor management and drought.
