Water conservation resources
Water Resources Education Center
Whether exploring Vancouver’s Water Resources Education Center’s website or visiting their beautiful facility overlooking the Columbia River in Vancouver, you'll find a world of information designed to inspire us to become better stewards of our water resources. Teaching people of all ages how to wisely use this important, life-giving natural resource is what the Water Resources Education Center is all about. Visit the Water Resources Education Center: 4600 SE Columbia Way Vancouver, WA.
The Nature Conservancy also has great information about the average water footprint in America and the “hidden” water we each consume.
Clark Conservation District
A great local resource is the Clark Conservation District, whose mission is to protect, conserve, and improve natural resources. The District focuses on water quality, soils management to limit erosion and run off, and critical habitat areas. Staff conduct outreach and education of best management practices, enhancement, and development to benefit present and future citizens.
Washington State Department of Ecology
Water is a valuable resource in Washington. Using our resources wisely will help us fill the needs of people, industries, businesses and farms, while also keeping fish and other aquatic life alive and well. Across the state these water users have diverse needs and goals; we must find a way to share limited, fluctuating supplies. For tips and conservation ideas for your home and business, see the Department of Ecology’s water conservation website.
