    Default for us or to us

    Water is important for/to us.


    I think for is the correct choice. Am I right?

    Either could be correct, depending on the intended meaning.

    With for, it likely means that we need to drink water for our health.
    With to, it can mean that the quality of the water supply is an important issue.
