Ethical Water Practices and Issues in Our Resources
raSmith Landscape Architect, Tom Mortensen presented a live and recorded webinar on February 8th to help landscape professionals ethically utilize our water, current threats to freshwater and groundwater, and agribusiness challenges.
Mortensen gave in-depth examples about water use across the country and showed how PFAS, or the forever chemicals, are seeping into the water ways. For example, he talked about agribusiness' hand in this problem.
He continued to show how the Clean Water Act is flawed as surfacewater and groundwater are not one in the same according to the EPA.
Attendees were talk about the wastefulness associated with water use as 30 billion gallons of groundwater is pumped daily.
