From the Carroll University website, 2023: “The health and availability of freshwater resources in relation to human and natural impact is a global issue that affects everyone. How can we ensure there is enough clean and available drinking water to sustain a growing world population? What are the ways in which we can maximize our use of freshwater resources without causing damage to habitat? Can we find ways to restore and protect biodiversity?
