Who Owns the Water?
The human right of access to water is not something most of us need to think about. Western Washington is blessed with abundant amounts; we turn on our faucets and it pours out in a limitless stream. However, this is not the case for the 900 million people in the world who lack access to a clean source of water. Whether its access to water for farms, fish or development here in Whatcom County or internationally, water is central to everything we do. In 2010 the United Nations General Assembly recognized access to water and sanitation as a basic human right.
