From the rushing streams of the Rocky Mountains to the boundless oceans that surround our vast land, one thing is clear: water is a central element that connects us all. Without it, life as we know it would cease to exist. It is no wonder then that water conservation and management continue to be at the heart of discourses on sustainable living. With climate change posing an increasing threat to freshwater resources, it has become crucial for scientists, creatives, policymakers, and the general public to better understand and engage in discussions and actions concerning water management.
