What drives improvements in water quality?

Society advances by finding better ways to harness water and energy.  Emerging civilizations use water to generate energy. Developed civilizations use energy to distribute water and improve its quality. With few exceptions, energy and water are inextricably linked – more power requires more water and cleaner water requires more energy. Improvement of energy and water resources resonates between environmental economics and policy.

From an improvement standpoint, is water and energy treated differently? Differently from the perspective ways and means to improve quality, where energy providers strives for cleaner and more efficient and reliable sources and water strives to distribute cleaner supplies for agricultural and human consumption.  Where way and means include investment, grants and regulations. While cost is ultimate driver to achieve these goals, governments tends to take a different approach to improve power and water resources. 

Water remediation is a complex subject in terms of scope, variability and its immediacy. This is underscored by the countless tens of billions of dollars spent and hundreds of billions of dollars needed to support, sustain and improve the water we drink and use. If the rhetoric and data can be believed, water quality improvements may have peeked some years ago and now taking a dip. It appears the more surface water we assess the more we find it not so good.

The proof is seeing how a change can be made!

It is a matter of caring for our environment and for our own health. There many good reasons why keeping our water clean is an important priority to people, the planet and profits.
