While we experience terrible drought and flooding events more frequently due to climate change, another significant hazard is hidden beneath the surface. To be more precise, the surface of our freshwater supplies. Accessible freshwater on earth is limited. Even though 70% of the planet is covered in water, humans can only access 0.01%, more than half of which is in lakes. Within these lakes, fragile ecosystems maintain the water quality. Once the balance in these ecosystems is disturbed, the water quality will deteriorate, making the water unusable for consumption or agriculture.
