#6 Healthy Environment

Clean water impacts many areas,which can include adverrse health from contaminated drinking water. The vast aquaculture business in Mason County must have clean water to grow and sell their product. Recreation and tourism is affected when water quality declines. Air quality is of concern, especially in older buildings where mold is present and can affect the health of  residents. What about soil health? Everything we eat comes from the soil, when traced back to it's roots (no pun intended). Healthy soil is vital to growing food that is packed with vitamins and minerals, as well as phytochemicals that work together to improve human health.
