A Watershed Moment in Earths History
The American Water Trust partners with Water Today to share vital
information with the public and restore watersheds!
For decades watersheds have been horrendously mismanaged. There have been many projects thrown around here and there without any real understanding of a regions climate let alone the individual parts that come together to create a complex living ecosystem. From building dams to rerouting waterways to pollution, water is a resource that has been squandered with little thought to the value of a river or watershed in its natural state. The American Water Trust holds watershed restoration at the heart of their work understanding that these places are not only necessary for life, but are primary regulators of the Earths planetary systems. In their partnership with Water Today Canada, an independent media and data outlet dedicated to water, AWT plans to provide solutions for polluted, unhealthy water ways.
Watersheds are the primary regulators of the Earths planetary systems.
Although Water Today began in Canada, they understand that water does not abide by borders set by governments and many watersheds are, in fact, shared by Canada, the United States, and Mexico. With the support of the American Water Trust, Water Today has now expanded into the United States developing Water Today New York, Water Today Ohio, and Water Today Georgia. Their teams are dedicated to providing trustworthy data, research, and media to the populations within and around the watersheds, sharing important information about water quality and other relevant water issues. This is of extreme importance as much of the management and decisions made around water ways throughout the past century have been laced in corruption. It is time we put water back into the hands of the people and ecosystems that rely on this liquid source for life.

Through rigorous journalism and in-depth interviews, Water todays experts share vital information about local watersheds and provide interactive maps which indicate places where water is safe to drink, where it isn’t, where there are water shortages, dangerous algae blooms, or advisories put in place. With data provided by the Water Today teams, the American Water Trust will offer holistic solutions. The AWT understands, in depth, the complexities of a what it takes to re-create a healthy water system. Water Today will be able to consult with the AWT for solutions that can be implemented on the ground to not only clean polluted waters, but to bring those waterways as close to their natural states as possible. The AWT is dedicated to bringing water back to LIFE, understanding that water needs to be alive in order to impart life.

In nature, living water seeps through soil, moves through layers, gathers healthy algae, microbiota, microflora, & bio-available minerals. Through its movement, which often contains spiral vortices (like in bubbling spring or in tumbling waterways), the water is able to exchange gases such as oxygen & carbonic acid, and its molecules are able to form highly organized repeating patterns, like those within a crystal, allowing it to store & transfer information. This is really just scratching the surface of the complexities within the wild water processes, however, it is important to note that water, in its natural state, is more bio-available for ecosystems, as well as the systems that make up the human body.
“Already plagued by decades of mismanagement, our water is now threatened by watershed depletion, and the drying/warming it fuels. Time is running out. It is urgent that we have a solid knowledge of its current state to be able to fix it.”, states Water Todays website, watertoday.ca. Desertification is already affecting communities across the globe, it is not some far-fetched fantasy, but a reality that is here. Now. Through this partnership, the American Water Trust supports Water Todays goals to gain a stronger foothold within the U.S. as they the add more affiliates throughout the states. There is hope in the face of the climate crisis, if only we can truly make a shift from systems of mismanagement and avarice to ones that restore and value healthy waterways. As humans we have reshaped the face of the planet, a pyrrhic victory of society versus nature. It is time we remember that we too are a part of this nature that we’ve built our walls against, and that our lives are irrevocably tied to the health of the waters surrounding us. The American Water Trust and Water Today understand that we are at a pivotal point in Earths history and are committed to moving forward in a new way, a way that is devoted to life, and therefore, to water.
