The care of rivers is not a question of rivers, but of the human heart.
~ Tanaka Shozo
When it comes to the care of rivers, humans in the US now also have an app and a website.
The Environmental Protection Agency has unrolled a new site where you can find information on the condition of thousands of lakes, rivers, and streams throughout the U.S.
Just enter your zipcode (or your GPS location), and discover the health of the waterways near you. If they’re polluted, you might also discover what action is being taken to clean them.
See for yourself, using your smart phone, tablet or desktop computer: watersgeo.epa.gov/mywaterway/
Let me know what you find--any polluted waterways near you?
Thanks for the tip on the EPA app/website, Denise Dahn!
