What's your insight on water management?

For my birthday (last August), I asked people on my mailing list for their most important insight or advice on water (or environmental) management. Here are their replies:
  • "In the end, sustaining and rebuilding natural resilience may be our only real defence against the ravages of climate change." -- Ralph Pentland
  • "One Water" -- Celeste CantĂș
  • "All the governance in the world won’t help you if you don’t know how much water is in your basin…" -- Sarah Hendry
  • "As one who grew up in the pretty much desert - we water our gardens or the grass (or agricultural fields) in the early hours of the morning, or after sunset, since water loss due to evaporation decreases." -- Keren Cohen
It's a bit late (or early?) for my birthday, but what is your insight into water management?
