Water Conservation & Usage

Water Conservation & Usage

Volume 2, Issue 9, June 4, 2013

When it comes to conserving water there are several timing tools we could use to reduce the consumption. What I mean by timing is that you allow for an allotted amount of time for some usage. Like showering for 5 minutes, washing a driveway for less than one minute, and using only standing water that is ran for one minute in the sink for rinsing dishes. These are several ways that are timed amounts of pouring and of water usage that is not in excess and actually reduces the consumption of the consumer.

There are not only alternatives into employing plastic gallons containers to use to water plants and using them to measure for rinsing dishes, to limiting the cycle in your washing machine and only washing clothes when the washer is full. There are other alternatives like turning off the water while brushing your teeth and essentially turning off water systems when not in use. There are other tips on ( http://wateruseitwisely.com/100-ways-to-conserve/index.php) where you can get up to 100 tips on how you can conserve and reduce water usage.

Water is a precious resource and our planet is two-thirds water; that we take for granted everyday and where we put pressure on our resources in utilization, and quite frankly water is not that readily available anymore, as it was like in past years. Our rivers, lakes, oceans, seas, and water wells are becoming more and more exposed to chemicals in its environment and it is because of industrialization. Some are also dried out due to no rain in the area or locality.

Our external environment is ever-changing and it has more pollution factors that come up more so than ever before than it had before in years past. We have more pollutants in the air, ground, water, and waste contaminants that come up through different methods that pollute our water systems. Some can even become contaminated through an innocent act or nature itself like contamination run-offs into our sewer systems and water systems when it rains. The toxins and chemicals that are airborne become ground waste when it rains like that of acid rain and our water is exposed to the contaminants. Some contaminants include fertilizer, solvents, oil, gasoline, waste, plastics, garbage, etc..Etc... (http://www.explainthatstuff.com/waterpollution.html)

Sewage in our water systems like rivers, oceans, seas, and lakes is a huge problem that not only contaminates our water but affects our seafood that some even become extinct. There are 1.1 billion people on the planet that depend on water.

It is precious, and a vital part of every person’s regime on this planet that uses it to stay fit, well, a vitally nourished. We also must be cognizant of the fact that all water is not clean and may have chemicals. We could purchase water filters, softeners, water filtration systems, and/or water faucet filters to cleanse out the water that is piped in to our faucets from wells and water systems in our locality. Water comes from rain, especially spring water, and it does not rain on a daily basis, so we can assume that some of the water systems dry out due to the fact it has not rained.

Not only should you employ conservation in the home but everyone should put it into practice in business. No one is exempt from over using water in their environment.
