World Water Day 2011 Focuses on Urbanization

Each day it is estimated that more than 14,000 people die from the lack of water or diseases from contaminated water. Approximately 9,500 are children.  Many believe that water is a more important issue than oil.  Celebrated on March 22 and started by the United Nations in 1993, World Water Day’s objective is to focus attention on and advocate for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.
