Aquatic: Lakes and Ponds
No other single part of life in the world has as much impact as water. You could say that air is important, and it is, but without the water, you would not have the oxygen producing plants that produce and purify the oxygen we breathe! The reservoirs from which much of the country’s municipal and rural water supply comes are of increasing importance. Keeping them safe, and available, should be high on our priority list!
Our smaller lakes and ponds are important as well. They feed a lot of the environment. They provide water for livestock, irrigation, both agricultural and horticultural, provide food and recreation, and provide life sustaining water for wildlife.
