Default Re: Who is the patron saint of water?

The patron saint of running water is St. John Nepomucene, possibly because he was martyred by being thrown off a bridge and drowned. There are a number of saints invoked for the relief of drought. As for the environment in general, two patrons are Bd. Kateri Tekakwitha and St. Francis of Assisi.
