    Name some of the human activities impacting the health of water systems, both locally (your watershed) and globally (freshwater and oceans). What can you do to improve the health of water systems?

    One is salting the roads in the winter adds the salt to the water and it increases growth of things like algae blooms

      Very true, great point!  I think about this a lot because it definitely is an environmental concern.  A great alternative to salting icy roads and sidewalks, etc. is using sand!  It doesn't melt the ice as much but it makes it way safer and easier to walk/drive!
  • Reflection Question
    Water Fix Leaky Faucets
    Fixing leaky faucets is one of the tasks that we can easily put off until later. Good job on completing this action! How will you use the momentum from completing this action to increase your water efficiency in other ways?

    What are the most prominent water concerns in your area? Examples include drought, flooding, pollution, access, security, and privatization.

    Lucas Beberg 4/29/2020 7:13 AM
    The most prominent one in my area is we live right next to one of the biggest and unsafest landfills in the country and they are currently removing it so just worried there is a chance that effects the water

      Ariana Porcello 5/01/2020 12:45 PM
      That is definitely a concern!  I'm glad to hear they are moving it because toxins as well as the materials themselves can definitely leach into the water supply!

    I think honestly everyone is because in the end the earth is where everyone lives so if it becomes unhealthy that effects the lively hood of everyone

    Bike more when the weather permits

  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Drive Less
    How has your access to various kinds of transportation throughout your life influenced your current attitudes about transportation and your transportation behavior?

    There aren't much other than cars or bikes  where I live but now that it's nice I can bike more
  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Walk Instead
    Half of all trips made in the US are three miles or less; 72% of them are driven. Does this statistic describe your own transportation habits? If so, how might you incorporate more muscle-powered transportation in your daily life?

    Yes I feel like i usually drive but now that it is getting nicer out I will walk and bike much more
