save water

April 25, 2008 12:09am CST
The day before yesterday,the water was cut off here in my school.It was said that there was something wrong with the water pipe.We have already got used to this,especially in summer,This kind of thing happens almost every month. Everytime when this happened,we would tell us how water is priceless and we should save water later,but each time when the water was normal again,we would go back to our old way again. The scientist estimated that in the 21st certury it wouldnot be oil that people fight for,it would be water. So we need to save water,Do you always try to do something to save water?do you have something ideals on how to save

Yes, that happens when there is a severe water shortage. Then all of us will crimp and save as much water as possible, once it starts raining will leave all the good habits and waste water. At our place we have a well at home. So when it is raining we have put up structures and pipelines for all the rain water to flow into the well. So our well doesn't dry up that easily. With that , water is not brackish too because rain water keeps falling into it. We use it for everything, for cooking also. Only for drinking purposes we use municipality water which we get through Aqua guard water filter. So we do not have water problem at our place .

That's good,but won't the water from the well be very cloudy after rain,I think there will be much dust in the water.

No the water will not be cloudy or dusty as you think. The water is collected when it is raining from the roof of our house. So if we keep it clean there is no problem at all. We have had this for the past five years and till now no problem at all.

Hi! Yes, i think so. Water is porbably the most important thing in our world and our lives. We mght think that water is unlimited because oceans are endless but because of gloabl warming and other environmental issues these natural resources might just be endangered of being gone one of these days. We also do need oil but not as much as water. We need oil for our cars and other appliances but we can do with these things even when they are gone. We can just walk to school or work or maybe use bicycles. We can even go back to the olden times and make use of transport animals like horses and/or donkeys. What I do to save water is that I dont use the shower everyday. I use it maybe once a week and the other days I make use of water tubs and pails. That way, I can save the water and learn to budget it whenever I take a bath. Turning off the faucets while washing dishes and during brushing our teeth can really do help save. I think it might not be much but when we all do it then it becomes a lot more and maybe even get to save a swimming pool full of water.

I believe you are doing well in saving water. But it's really hard to change since I have already developed a bad habit to waste water. I have always take it for granted But now I think it's time for me to take it into practice. Thanks a lot
