Water and Technology

Water affects anything and everything we do.  First, we need water just to get up and go about our daily lives.  Additionally, virtually everything we use, wear, and eat needs water too.  Water and technology have been linked since the time of the ancient Greeks!  From respiration to photosynthesis and from electricity to industry, water is ESSENTIAL.  Follow us on Facebook this week to learn more about how water affects EVERYTHING that we do.
