Leonardo da Vinci said once that water is the driving force of all nature. It can sustain life by its influence on our natural environment: soil, plants and animals. It’s also the source of human livelihood because it supports our households, families and businesses and fuels many industries, including agriculture and manufacturing. Conserving and maintaining water quality is especially important for Australians because ours is the world’s driest inhabited continent.
