More aware­ness could help save our oceans

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - - VOICES & OPINION - ShirleyMcCol­lum, Laud­erdale by-the-Sea

I was very sur­prised to learn how dam­ag­ing ex­cess fresh wa­ter is to the ocean in gen­eral and the reefs in par­tic­u­lar. Since your ex­cel­lent ar­ti­cle, I have be­come very con­scious of ev­ery bit ofwa­ter I am us­ing and I be­lieve I am us­ing at least five gal­lons less per day (on av­er­age). This is no sac­ri­fice; just aware­ness. If ev­ery­one cut their per­sonal wa­ter us­age by a sim­i­lar amount, it would greatly de­crease fresh wa­ter dumped (or pumped) into the ocean and pro­tect our ocean for the fu­ture.

Thanks for keep­ing us aware.
