Drinking Water Protection by Water Resources Education Network
Is Your Drinking Water Protected? Video was created by the Water Resources Education Network (WREN), a project of the League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania Citizen Education Fund (LWVPA-CEF), to raise awareness that public health depends on a reliable supply of safe water supply sources: the lakes, rivers, streams, and aquifers we rely on for our drinking water in Pennsylvania. We can help with common sense measures. Every public water system in Pennsylvania is eligible to get help from PA DEP to develop a source water protection plan to reduce the risk of contamination, coordinate better emergency response near water supply areas and to help assure future sustainability. Does the water system serving your home or business have a Source Water Protection Plan? Check out www.sourcewaterpa.org and click on Your Status.

Water Pollution effects and the ways to reduce it
Water Pollution effects and the ways to reduce it Also, See Video: What is water Pollution and Types of Water Pollution? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_zEZDwTMIo Also, See Video: Causes of Water Pollution - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQ4t7Dk-Qhg About this Video: The major effects of water pollution is the damage to the food chain. When harmful toxins are present in water they are transferred to higher level organisms through the food chain. Heavy metals like lead, mercury, iron, cadmium, aluminum, and magnesium are present in water sources. If these metals are present in the sediment, these reach the food chain through plants and aquatic animals. This causes heavy metal poisoning in the water. Polluted water is a hot bed for diseases. Microbial water pollution can spread infectious diseases such as typhoid and cholera from drinking contaminated water. Water pollutants alter the overall chemistry of the water, causing changes in acidity, conductivity and temperature. These in turn have an effect on the marine life . Heavy rain carries up dirt and silt and deposit them into the water. If the dirt and silt settle in the water body, then these sediments prevent sunlight from reaching aquatic plants. If the sunlight can’t reach the plants, they perish. These sediments also clog up fish gills and suffocate organisms that live on the bottom of the body of the water. If oil is spilled on the water due to accidents, the effects on the ecosystem and the components are harmful. Many animals can get destroyed in case they swallow oil. Things we can do to reduce water pollution DO NOT pour fat from cooking or any other type of fat, oil, or grease down the sink. Keep a “fat jar” under the sink to collect the fat and discard in the solid waste when full. DO NOT dispose of household chemicals or cleaning agents down the sink or toilet. Avoid using the toilet as a wastebasket. Most tissues, wrappers, dust cloths, and other paper goods should be properly discarded in a wastebasket. DO NOT flush pills, liquid or powder medications or drugs down the toilet. Install a water efficient toilet. Run the dishwasher or clothes washer only when you have a full load. This conserves electricity and water. Use the minimum amount of detergent and/or bleach when you are washing clothes or dishes. Use only phosphate-free soaps and detergents. If you do your part to prevent pollution in your area, then you'll be helping to protect water for both yourself and everything else that relies upon this precious resource. Minimize the use of pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers. DO NOT dispose of these chemicals, motor oil, or other automotive fluids into the sanitary sewer or storm sewer systems. Both of them end at the river. ____ About SuccessCDs Education: Our website ( https://www.successcds.net ) is one of the leading portal on Entrance Exams and Admissions in India.

Protecting Water Resources - The Role of Isotope Hydrology
United Nations - Water is a renewable but often limited resource that is frequently wasted or polluted. Isotope hydrology is a nuclear technique that helps countries to better manage water resources by providing information about water origin, age, quality and movement in underground aquifers. Isotopes of water are variants of its chemical elements. By studying isotopes of water, hydrologists gain scientific knowledge that helps to inform countries how to protect and preserve their water supplies. From Vienna, Austria Alexandra-Anna Panic has this report.

How to Save Water in Six Easy Ways
Watch more How to Go Green at Home videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/282280-How-to-Save-Water-in-Six-Easy-Ways Are you really doing all you can to conserve water, our most precious resource? Here are some simple ways you may not have thought of. Step 1: Ask yourself if you really want water Only ask restaurant servers to bring you a glass of water and refill it if you're planning to drink it. Step 2: Check your toilet Make sure your toilet isn't leaking by putting a drop of food coloring in the tank. If it shows up in the bowl a few minutes later and you haven't flushed, you have a leak. Tip A leaky toilet can waste 200 gallons of water a day! Step 3: Keep cold water on hand If you drink tap water at home, keep a jug of it in the fridge so you don't have to run the water until it's cold. Step 4: Recycle veggie water Wash fruits and vegetables in a basin rather than under running water, then use that water, and any you used to boil vegetables, to water your plants. In addition to saving water, you'll give them extra nutrients. Or save boiled veggie water to start a soup stock. Tip If you have a dehumidifier, use the water on plants. Step 5: Don't be lazy! Sweep steps, driveways, and sidewalks rather than hosing them off. Step 6: Keep a water spray bottle on the sink Keep a small spray bottle of water on your bathroom sink. Instead of running the faucet, use it to wet your toothbrush before applying paste. Think of how much water you can save with a few spritzes. Did You Know? The average American wastes up to 30 gallons of water every day.

Water Resources
005 - Water Resources In this video Paul Andersen explains how water is unequally distributed around the globe through the hydrologic cycles. Seawater is everywhere but is not useful without costly desalination. Freshwater is divided between surface water and groundwater but must me stored and moved for domestic, industrial, and agricultural uses. Subsidized low cost water has created a problem with water conservation but economic changes could help solve the problem. Do you speak another language?

Protect our Water
These people are willing to take a stand to protect Guelphs water from short sighted quarry practices. Are you? One day the Quarry will close and fill with water. If our aquatard is not protected, then any contaminants in that pool of sitting water, will be in contact with our drinking water. The Dolime quarry already draws the most water from our aquifer, and now they are digging into the aquifers cap? Provincial legislation does not protect the health and well being of our communities from pits and quarries. Stop putting our water at risk, stop putting our lungs at risk. Water is first, our food is first. How much more must we sacrifice? Enough, enough, enough, Enough already! Take a stand with the City! Sign the petition. Motivate the Ministry of Environment and the ministry of Natural Resources. It is time for our political leaders to act. It is passed time to put people first.

How to Protect the Rainforest
For our final installment in the Amazon Adventures series, I interviewed expedition leader Corine Vriesendorp about what it means to protect and conserve areas of the rainforest in spite of the overwhelming global demands for its natural resources. This is a segment in a series about The Field Museum's Rapid Inventory No. 27, a journey through the forests between the rivers Tapiche and Blanco in Peru. Every year, the Museum's conservation group [the Action Center!] gathers together leading scientific experts across a number of disciplines (botany, zoology, geology, and anthropology) in order to gain an understanding of little-known areas of the rainforest. They work with local communities and their governments to help inform decisions made for conserving these unique, precious, and threatened parts of the world.

Well, thank you for asking because I sit on the Ag Committee in the House and anything we're gonna be dealing with with water it's gonna come to our committee. I look forward to South Carolina DNR study about our water with the surface water. They say in the next couple of months we should be getting that study. Water is very important because we all have to have something to drink. And also water is important because we like to eat and it grows what we eat, whether it be a cow or a hog or any of the vegetables that we have. So water is a mighty important resource that we have in America. I look forward to getting the report from DNR on what we need to do to make sure we have water for the rest of my life and the rest of everybody's life who's here in South Carolina. We've talked a lot in this conference for the last couple of days about specific research needs that the state has and the work that's being done by a number of different partners here related to emerging technologies that can be used to help with management of resources. So, what do you think from your perspective as a legislator, what some of those research needs are going to be for the next foreseeable future? Well I'm, we're fortunate in North Augusta, we have the Savannah River and so we have a large body of water there. The city of Augusta gets their drinking water and all their water out of that. Edgefield County gets their water out of that. We just want to make sure that everybody gets a fair shake far as the cities, the counties, the farmers, anybody who uses water we want to make sure that they able to get the water that they need and there's enough to go around. But the main thing we have to make sure is is people in South Carolina, we don’t have a water war and one of the other things we're looking at especially in our area is the city of Atlanta wants to come down to the Savannah River Basin and start taking our water back up to Atlanta. So we see Atlanta has a problem, especially when there's a drought, and I forget what their lake is up there which is their main water source. I've driven over it on I-75 and you can see it's just way down. And that's when they starting to look, come down our way and try to take some of our South Carolina water back up to Atlanta. And I find that hard to be able to deal with that and and I'm not being selfish, but yeah, yeah it's our water, so it's it's very important because North Augusta, we just build a 30 million gallon storage tank because of trying to protect our town because the interstate goes right over our river and there's been several tractor-trailer wrecks that the tractor-trailer has actually ended up in the Savannah River or the Augusta Canal and it's spilling diesel fuel. Lucky it’s not being real bad, especially if it would have been some kind of nuclear something that was that truck was hauling or something real bad acid or something like that. So we built a 30 million gallon tank that would allow us to not draw water out of the Savannah River for a week, and depends on whether it's the winter to summer, whether people watering yards, so we might be able to go longer than a week, but the river would, we call self-flush. It would, that contaminant would go on down the river, so North Augusta is prepared. From the perspective of the legislature, what are your next steps? I know you have a session coming up, what will you guys be discussing? We got, looks like the dam issues are gonna come back again, and I say that is a word that's a dam, not cussing, but anyway could we got to teasing about that. But we'll be looking at dam issues and we'll also be looking to get the report from DNR on what they’re saying that we need to do for our surface water and I don't plan on voting or passing anything prior to us getting that study because I don't want to pass something and then off of a knee-jerk reaction, I want to pass it off a science and true technology and stuff that we learned this is what we need to do to save our water and protect our resources.

7 Ways to Survive Natural Disasters
How to Survive Natural Disasters. Here’s a list of survival tips that can save your life in an emergency. We live in a time when natural disasters occur more and more often and get more and more devastating. Many of us believe we should blame the human race for that. Whether it’s true or not, we all want to know how to survive when those disasters happen. Some rules are universal for most natural disasters. A national campaign called Ready was started in the United States to inform the population about how to get ready for and survive in different emergency situations. It recommends having a basic survival kit to provide you with the most important things just in case. Remember you will need to have enough food, water, and other supplies for at least 72 hours after the disaster. “Other supplies” include a battery powered weather radio, flashlight, first aid kit, a whistle, a dust mask, personal sanitation items (such as moist towelettes), pliers, can opener for food, maps of your area and an emergency cell phone with backup batteries. TIMESTAMPS Hurricane 0:40 Tornado 1:45 Tsunami 3:15 Flood 4:10 Avalanche 5:03 Wildfire 6:00 Earthquake 7:00 SUMMARY - If a hurricane starts while you are driving, leave your vehicle and find a building to shelter in, or a ditch. Stopping in an overpass will not save you. If your home is a trailer and there is enough time to flee to a safe area – do it. - If a tornado starts when you are in a public building, follow the same rules. You want to stay as low as possible. Avoid windows and open spaces such as auditoriums, gyms, and large hallways. Desks and benches can give you some extra protection if you get under them. It is impossible to outrun a tornado. - Tsunamis are so fast they hit the coast minutes after the earthquake. Remember that tall buildings, including hotels right in the beach area, can provide an excellent shelter. In case a tsunami finds you at sea, stay there instead of going back to the coast. It won’t be a safe haven. - Don’t try to be the bravest person around and stay in your house once you hear the evacuation warning. Leave for safety in higher grounds with your important papers in a waterproof container. If a flash flood gives you no time to evacuate and the water is all around you, don’t try to swim across it. - When an avalanche starts, try to move to the side of the slope as fast as you can. There will be more snow in the center of the flow. To move faster, drop any heavy equipment you have on you. If you can’t escape it, try using a sturdy tree to keep you above the snow. - If you find yourself in a wildfire area, it is critically important to ensure that you can breathe. If you fail to do it, you can pass out in the midst of a danger zone. Use a wet cloth to cover your nose and mouth and escape to safety. - If an earthquake starts when you are inside, stay where you were. Experts say that during an earthquake you must drop to the floor, get underneath a table, cover your neck and head with one hand, and hold on with the other hand. Your entire body must be under the table. Don’t try to run out of the building - the exterior of a building is one of the most dangerous places.

Protecting Water and the Environment
Santos has reiterated its commitment to protect water and the environment during the development of the company’s Narrabri Gas Project. Santos’ Narrabri-based hydrogeologist, Glenn Toogood, explains how the company is 100% committed to understanding water. "You do hear a lot in the community about concerns with water and the coal seam gas industry. What I can tell you is that we are 100 per cent committed to understanding water. As a hydrogeologist, I spend a lot of time working with local land holders understanding ground water in this area." Glenn Toogood, Santos Hydrogeologist "The environment is so important to all of us here in Narrabri and with my own two eyes, I’m not seeing any degradation of that." Debbie Ayscough, Narrabri Plumbing "There is a lot of integrity between farmers and Santos." Peter Gett, landholder "Most of the important work that Santos does with landholders is making sure that they understand, feel comfortable and that it works in with whatever activities they are undertaking on the land." Warwick Moppett, Land access team member "I work in it every single day and I see the casings they use and I see it every day. I see it at the drilling rigs, they are laying the casings down, there is an inner casing for the gas, there is a heavy duty outer casing to protect the gas line, then it is encased in concrete. You can’t do any better than that." Ron Campbell, Namoi Waste "Yeah I have heard stories, that there are piles of salt being left laying around on the land around well sites on people farms from the alkaline water and that that comes up. That is just false, it is not true, it’s all taken away to Santos’ sediment plants." Peter Gett, landholder "The pond design is designed around a double membrane system. There are two membranes there a primary and a secondary membrane so if we detect a leak between the primary and the secondary membrane we can pick that up pretty much immediately and rectify any problems that we may have." Rodney Bean, Santos Senior Field Services officer "What we do to ensure that we don’t impact any agriculture land is to handle that water very, very carefully. We will continue to communicate with our farmers in the local area. This is important as we believe this will create a long term sustainable relationship with both Santos and the agricultural community well into the future." Glenn Toogood, Santos Hydrogeologist

Beyond the Science: Environmental Problems…Cultural Solutions | Paul K. Doss | TEDxEvansville
Science is the endeavor that allows us to describe our natural world and how it works. Science gives us the power and knowledge to understand our environment, recognize problems, and quantify threats. But science doesn’t tell us how to use that knowledge. Our planet’s most pressing environmental problems won’t be solved by science. Preserving water resources, facing the immediate and measurable threats from global climate change, reducing waste generation, and solving the myriad environmental challenges facing humans can only be achieved by cultural change. A society represents a collection of individual behaviors…every one of us is responsible for behavioral change. But do we have the personal and political wherewithal to make those changes before we must manage crises? Paul K. Doss is Professor of Geology at the University of Southern Indiana, where he teaches courses on environmental geology, environmental science, geology of national parks, and water resources. Doss directs student research on environmental problems, such as impacts of humans on water resources, natural resources management and geological hazards. He has previously held positions with Yellowstone National Park, Indiana Dunes and Everglades National Park. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

Can We Protect Astronauts From Radiation? Building An Artificial Magnetosphere
Space is our future, but space is also a deadly place, with poisonous radiation and an increased risk of cancer. We’re protected here on Earth thanks to our planet’s magnetosphere, but is there a way to create an artificial magnetosphere and shield astronauts? Support us at: http://www.patreon.com/universetoday More stories at: http://www.universetoday.com/ Follow us on Twitter: @universetoday Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/universetoday Google+ - https://plus.google.com/+universetoday/ Instagram - http://instagram.com/universetoday Team: Fraser Cain - @fcain / [email protected] Karla Thompson - @karlaii / https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEItkORQYd4Wf0TpgYI_1fw Chad Weber - [email protected] Chloe Cain - Instagram: @chloegwen2001 With over half a century of experience sending humans into space, we’ve learned quite a bit about what it does to the human body. The microgravity weakens the bones, reduces muscles and puts stress on the organs, but this can be partly compensated by exercise. Time spent in isolation or in close quarters with other astronauts can push people to the breaking point. But this isn’t the first time we’ve learned to work in isolated and dangerous environments with other people. Being in space, away from the support of modern society requires that astronauts have the skills, training and communication with Earth to deal with medical emergencies, hardware failures, and the inevitable hostile xenomorphs, whether it’s a stand up fight or another bug hunt. But there’s one risk that’s going to always be there when humans travel out into the Solar System: radiation. Powerful solar storms can kill astronauts in days, but even the ongoing background radiation of the Universe is going to be increasing their risk of getting cancer, through their entire lives. We’re protected here on Earth by our planet’s magnetosphere; the magnetic shell that surrounds our world, redirecting high-energy particles so they can’t reach the surface. Earth is protected, and so is Jupiter. But good luck living down on the cloud tops of that gas giant. Unfortunately, the outer space places where we’d really like to live: the Moon, Mars, or rotating space stations in the Lagrange points, have no such protection. This leads our imaginations to wonder, could we generate an artificial magnetosphere to protect astronauts and space colonists? Magnets keep photos and shopping lists stuck to my refrigerator. How hard could it be?

Madison Groshans- Persuasive speech of Policy
Title: Nebraska’s Underground Water Resource Issues Topic: Contamination of underground water resources Specific purpose statement: To persuade the audience to protect and stop contaminating underground water resources. Thesis Statement: Our underground water resources our being contaminated on a daily basis, if we do not take action for this matter the consequences could be detrimental. Introduction: Imagine getting a nice cold drink of water, only to find out minutes later the water was filled with contaminates that can cause awful illness. Our main water resource, especially in Nebraska, is our underground water resources. We are granted with the great gift of the Ogallala Aquifer. Values are important when taking action. The first value is knowledge, the second value is global responsibility, and the final value is respect. These values are associated highly with the underground water resources. As citizens it is our duty to protect the resources that are naturally given to us to better our living. I-The problem we are initiating- contaminating our underground water resources. A- Values 1- Knowledge (The Groundwater Foundation 2017) 2- Respect (Contaminate types)(The groundwater foundation, 2017) B- Sources of Groundwater Contamination (US EPA Seminar Publication) 1- Natural (US EPA Seminar Publication) 2- Landfills (US EPA Seminar Publication) 3- Pesticides and Fertilizer use (US EPA Seminar Publication) C- Effects of Groundwater contamination (US EPA Seminar Publication) 1- Potential Health Problems (US EPA Seminar Publication) 2- Treatment ways for contamination (US EPA Seminar Publication) D- Peoples role 1- Preventing (EPA, United States Environmental Protection Agency 2017) II- The solution to water contamination and pollution B- Contaminates will take $110 billion to clean (Walton, 2012) 1- 126,00 groundwater sites have not met regulation C- What people can do at home (Department of Energy & Environmental Protection 2017) 1- Properly dispose of water 2- Safely store all chemicals 3- Minimize use of chemicals D- What people can do at work (Department of Energy & Environmental Protection 2017) 1- Properly dispose of waste and ensure proper water waste 2- Keep chemicals away from storm water 3- Develop a pollution prevention plan E- Objectives that may arise (Department of Energy & Environmental Protection 2017) 1- Fiction: Groundwater is inexhaustible and spring water is always pure 2- Fiction- groundwater comes from underground rivers III- Imagine a world where if you drink the water supplied to you, you become irritably sick. A- We can save a lot of money by not having to undo the contamination problems. (Walton, 2012) 1- 126 billion dollars to reverse these affects B- Visualizations on PowerPoint presentation 1- Contaminated water vs. uncontaminated Conclusion: Living in Nebraska we are fortunate to be able to drink water fresh out of a faucet or directly from the hose. However, this could drastically change if we do not start to control how we are contaminating our precious underground water resources. By controlling what we do with chemical and other wastes we can drastically change the decline of this resource. Take action and start to think more about what you put into the earth. Join groups in your area or state that can come up with water pollution plans, or better yet start on yourself! Our water resources our something we cannot live without, so lets not try to.

2018 SC Water Resources Conference: Meet Representative Sheheen
Abridged Transcript: Hello I'm Kathy Woodard with Clemson University PSA and I'm here at the SC Water Resources Conference in Columbia, SC. I have with me Senator Vincent Sheheen who has been a speaker here at our conference. This is his second time with us as a participant in our conference, so welcome. Thank you for giving us your time. Thank you, it's great to be back. So I hear that part of what you talked about was the flooding that we recently had and how it impacted your particular area, and you're in Kershaw County, correct? Actually, I represent three counties Chesterfield, Lancaster and Kershaw, and the Chesterfield portion of my Senate District was really hit hard by the water that came with Hurricane Florence. It was really a rain event there and it brought to the forefront for my folks up there really the damage and the challenge of dealing with that huge volume of water. We closed up about 20 bridges for a period of time, transportation was difficult, schools were closed, over 100 homes have been damaged from the water itself and the corresponding damage that comes from that. It's a real challenge in the rural counties, especially, to deal with that. So I got to go up and help them manage it for a day or so because it was all hands on deck to make it happen. So, what would you say in your position as being some of the most pressing needs we have in SC related to water resource management? We have seen tremendous amounts of population growth in this state, probably the most critical need right now is to understand what we have. On surface water, what do we have, how can we allocate it, is there enough, in what areas is it stressed, in what areas is it's plentiful. The same with underground water, we need to know. I'm really proud that we've led an effort to try to complete studies on both surface and underwater capacity and then we're going to make the hard decisions, right? If there's a river that is overstressed right now, then we need to protect it. We need to make sure that the uses both industrial for drinking water and recreation that are currently allowed continue, but we might have to say future growth has to be constrained. And then maybe in other parts of the state where we do have plenty of water, we can help to ship industry and jobs and an opportunity to those areas where we know we have the resource. So, knowing what we have is important, and then making sure that allocations are appropriate. What I don’t want to happen is for us to look back on what God gave us and wish that we can handle it differently because it's gone. We had a Rudy Mancke yesterday talking a lot about natural resources and protecting those natural resources, so that it's good to hear that you’re thinking along those things as well. The other question I have you is what are some research needs in particular, you talked about the understanding of what we have, so what would be some research areas and priorities that you think will be important for the state to address in the near future? I think it's critical that we understand the change in climate and how that is going to affect our assets and our resources. So for example, in Chesterfield County where we saw the great flooding events, what are we going to see in the future and what changes do we need to make in that area and other areas. The bridges and causeways that currently exist obviously were not capable and competent handling that volume of water. We had a Mack truck that literally nosedived into a creek because the bridge gave way. We had you know loss of life in the state. I think the research on what this change in climate is going to do to our state is critical so that we can prepare - prepare our people and prepare our infrastructure and prepare ourselves to try to deal with it. I know that at your level you’re having a lot of policy discussions I’m sure about water resources, water resource management. What's your next step here in the state? Well I hope, one of the next steps I want us to see is not just South Carolina-related, I want us to have increased interstate cooperation. I helped to start the bi-state River Commission for the Catawba Wateree North Carolina South Carolina, and I think in the future it's gonna be really critical especially for these larger rivers and streams that we're working with other states to make sure that water resource is managed not just in South Carolina, but throughout the whole region. Let's face it, on the planet there are no boundaries and the rivers don’t recognize them, and we're gonna have to really work together with our neighbors to manage this resource as we see the south and the southeast grow in population. That’s a real important area that I don't know is quite getting the attention that I hope it will. Well, thank you so much for your time and thank you for the time you give us every time we have the conference. Thank you, it's a pleasure and I appreciate the work that's done here.
