I have already knew that there was a problem with the amount of clean water available in the world due to a class that I took back in Spring of 2013. The one thing I found scary was when they talked about the towns in the US that people were getting sick and some people were dying because of chemicals being in the water and they shouldn't have been. We should be able to depend on our cities and states making sure our water is drinkable. It's also sad that farmers and some citizens in California are not being able to obtain enough water to either water their crops or just drink it. In my state of Kansas, there are parts of the state that have to minimize the amount of water they use during the Summer and they are making it work. Decreasing the time you water your lawn or how long you are taking a shower, makes a difference that many people don't realize. We all need to do are part in helping reduce the amount of water we use everyday. I really enjoyed learning more about the problems we have out there, when it comes to the water shortage and ways that I could do to help decrease the amount of problems with our water. I would recommend other to watch this as well.
