Pledge to Reduce Water Use & Improve Water Quality

Abundant, clean water supplies are necessary for almost everything you come in contact with on a daily basis. How would your day be different during a severe, long-term drought? Or if water quality was dramatically reduced? From showers to food production to basic human needs, water plays an integral part of our day to day life.


In Nebraska, we’re lucky to have abundant water sources. However, some of these bodies of water have low water quality. Looking ahead, Nebraska will face droughts, reduced water volumes, and reduced water quality. Take a pledge today to help Nebraska keep its water sources safe and abundant!
