Cheap and Abundant in Pacific Northwest
In North America and particularly in the Pacific Northwest, we take water for granted; not only is it cheap, it is relatively abundant and clean. But while an average bathtub may hold 40 gallons of water, many people in developing countries survive on 8 gallons of water or less per day. In fact, an estimated 800 million people worldwide lack access to safe water supplies and 3.5 million people die each year from water-related disease.
What Does The Future Hold?
Most “green building” conversations emphasize energy efficiency. By contrast, the issue of water — its scarcity, purity, and significance to sustainability — is often overlooked or discounted. The future will likely bring additional regulations and costs. Professional builders are able to assist you in planning for your water needs now and into the future.
