Water is a critical part of our society, and one that is at risk from the impact of climate change.
But it is also one that can be dangerous to the people who live and work with it.
That’s why we need to ensure that the water we use is safe, sustainable and is not polluting our environment.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is asking us to do everything we can to make sure we’re not getting into a situation where we end up with a storm-water overflow that we can’t handle.
In addition to the Clean Water Act, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has set up a website where we can learn about how to stay safe and prevent flooding in the event of a disaster.
In the event that a disaster does occur, the Department of the Interior is helping local authorities make sure water quality standards are enforced.
The Department of Energy is offering free water filters to all eligible people who need to change their filters.
And the Department is issuing a statewide drought-prevention order for the entire state.
And we’ve also made progress in reducing the number of wildfires in the country, and the threat they pose.
But the federal government is still committed to protecting the environment, so we need you to be a part of that effort.
If you’re an American who has a water emergency, you can visit the National Ocean Service website, sign up for a free service, and get the information you need to make the best choices for your family, home and community.
