How Climate Change will Impact
Water Availability

Greenhouse gasses, like carbon dioxide, steadily increasing in our atmosphere  over past decades, are changing global weather patterns. More and stronger storms, hurricanes, tornadoes and droughts are evidence that global warming is not a theory but rather the story of cause and effect.

It will take time to change our energy sources from polluting coal and oil to renewable solar and wind, so expect weather abnormalities to continue, probably for decades. The availability of fresh water is already being affected.

Summer heat drives moisture from the soil in normal weather, so hotter summers mean extreme soil dehydration, drought, and dropping water tables, which leave wells dry and aquifers depleated.

Snowpack melts sooner, and precipitation which used to fall as snow falls as rain and flows away, instead of recharging ground water.

Floods contaminate wells and spread disease. Stronger storms are causing flooding in many parts of the US and other countries, often leaving wells unusable.

Municipal water supplies may suffer interruptions, leaving people without water. Those without a backup water system will face hardship. Prepare now, by installing a rainwater harvesting system.
