About 70% of Earth is covered in water, but only 3% is fresh water suitable for drinking. Water conservation is a responsibility we all share.
And even though we live next to the largest freshwater lake in the world, we need to remember that every drop of water we use needs to be cleaned and treated before being returned to the lake, which is a costly process. The City of Thunder Bay offers a range of water conservation programs, funded by the City and delivered by EcoSuperior.
