  • Water connects us all: Water moves through living and nonliving systems and binds them together in a complex web of life.
  • Water is for all water users: Water of sufficient quality and quantity is vital for all water users (energy producers, farmers and ranchers, fish and wildlife, manufacturers, recreationists, rural and urban dwellers).
  • Water must be managed sustainably: Water resources management and education are crucial for providing tomorrow’s children with social and economic stability in a healthy and sustainable environment.
  • Water depends on personal responsibility and action: Awareness of and respect for water resources can encourage a personal, lifelong commitment of responsibility and positive community participation.
