Do You Know Your Water Catchment Area?
Your water catchment area doesn't just affect your drinking water, it also has a massive impact on the quality of life of your whole community. Your local ecosystems are dependent on the quality and make up of the water sources in the area. The health, variety and abundance of plants and wildlife can vary greatly depending on what nutrients are available in the water.
