I heart NY. Why you ask? We live in a State where we are richly endowed with more than 7,600 freshwater lakes, ponds and reservoirs. The inland waterbodies supply us with drinking water that comes straight to our faucets – that we share with over 200 species of neighboring fishes. In knowing that the entire earth is made of only 3% fresh water, we should consider ourselves blessed. So, this week when you make use of New York’s water, (ie. flush the toilet, shower, wash the dishes, brush your teeth, etc) give thanks and give love to the Empire State.
