Water is Precious According to a recent study from the U.S. Geological Survey, some 72 percent of Earth is covered in water, but 97 percent of that is salty ocean water and not suitable for drinking. The Earths's fresh water is very precious and rare. Two percent of the water on earth is glacier ice at the North and South Poles. This ice is fresh water and could be melted; however, it is too far away from where people live to be usable. Less than 1% of all the water on earth is fresh water that we can actually use. So please conserve water for us and for our future generations. Please review the "Water Conservation and Restrictions" page to familiarize with the Town of Ashland guidelines on Water conservation.
