Rachel Amy Rochford’s Artist Statement for RBC’s Blue Water Project.
"Why should we care about water?"

Water is the most essential element that is needed to sustain all life forms. It is said, that at present, less than 1% of the fresh water on earth, is available for use by all living things.
Will there always be enough fresh water for the ever expanding population? Trinidad and Tobago is fortunate that there is a consistent effort by the government to ensure that clean water is provided to the various communities in both islands. The Water and Sewage Authority (WASA) has stated that, “92% of the 1-3 million inhabitants of Trinidad and Tobago currently have access to safe drinking water.” The supply of pipe borne, clean water in many parts of Trinidad and Tobago however is still infrequent. Leaving some residents to rely on rain collection to fill their household water tanks and barrels, weekly deliveries of truck borne potable water or tote water daily from the village stand pipe to their home.
Pollution of the environment is a major factor affecting the availability of clean, disease free water to many communities worldwide. Water conservation measures are continually being taught and new ideas developed in order to maintain a balance in the ecosystem. In 2010 and 2011 due to changing climate and reduced rainfall, some of WASA’s water treatment plants and reservoirs in Trinidad, such as Caroni, Navet, North Oropouche, Freeport and Hollis, that supply fresh water to the country, ran low on water. Conservation measures were strictly encouraged, including a media campaign to educate citizens on various conservation tips, such as a nationwide ban on the use of garden hoses.
Easy access to clean water should never be taken for granted. The theme of my paintings for RBC’s Blue Water Project on June 8th, 2012 is,
"Water is the key to life…a constant thirst that must be quenched."
