    Water Brush My Teeth Without Running Water
    What is the main water source in your region? If you don't know, how could you find out?

    I'm not sure what the main water source is in the region. I could find out by looking online on the city's page. 
  • 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?

    I do not feel like this applies to me. In my hometown I live 8+ miles away from the main part of town so I have to drive, and in La Crosse I have walked just about everywhere. 
  • Reflection Question
    Water 5-Minute Showers
    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?

    I could turn off the faucet when I brush my teeth.
