Save the Water™ Mission

Science For Life

The mission of Save the Water™ is to conduct water research to identify and remove harmful chemicals from water, to improve water quality and human health; and to apply this research towards the education of present and future generations.

At Save the Water™, we respect the right of every individual to have access to safe and clean drinking water. That is why we are committed to water contamination research and education of water sustainability issues, in order to ensure the protection and conservation of water. Without clean drinking water, no species – plant, animal or human – can be saved. We must ensure that our water is not contaminated to the point where we can no longer drink it.

Recently, in the U.S., there have been news reports of pharmaceuticals and prescription drugs being found in our drinking water [1]. The water contamination problem is far more widespread than once believed, as there are about 80,000 chemicals in drinking water, thousands of them Contaminants of Emerging Concern (CECs), that we don’t currently know how to test for. At Save the Water™, we are responding to this problem by providing vital research and an analytical scientific component to help solve the problem.

 

Facts:

The Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) Registry count for organic and inorganic chemicals as of May 5, 2014 is: Over 87 million organic and inorganic substances [2]; these are the number of chemicals that are found in nature and have been synthesized and registered with the CAS.

Currently, there are approximately 80,000 chemicals in commercial use in the U.S. These are manufactured in hundreds of millions of tons per year [3]. Water is the universal solvent; everything dissolves in water. So it is understandable that the thousands of man-made chemicals we manufacture will find their way into the water supply.

According to the United Nations Environment Program website:

“There is concern that many of these (new chemicals) have not been tested for their full range of health and environmental effects including their potential to disrupt the hormonal systems of animals and human beings.

The importance of water analysis and contaminant research in the fight against the world’s water contamination crisis is quite clear. It is vitally important that we know what chemicals are finding their way into our water supply and what impact they are having on the public health.

Thus, Save the Water™ analysis and research will impact science in a variety of ways. Medical, analytical, and environmental sciences will be markedly improved by our techniques and the significant findings of our work. Humanity at all levels of the socio-economic spectrum will be impacted in a very positive way by the healthier, cleaner water achieved through the research performed by Save the Water™. Future generations will commend those who participated in the protection of this valuable life-giving resource.

Save the Water™ shares its knowledge through educational programs and resources. We also use our expertise and resources to provide humanitarian efforts and crisis response globally.
