As population increases, our need to preserve and conserve the use of freshwater resources become increasingly important. Potable water is used in diverse ways by countries across the world.
Along with population increase comes the problem of pollution.
What steps should governments take to ensure that freshwater resources are preserved for future generations? What are some factors that prevent the conservation of freshwater in our world today? Share your thoughts and comment on at least two posts made by your classmates by the end of the week.
I feel that government should stop pollution. That is one of the main problems that prevent the conservation of freshwater.
To be honest, the government is more focused on themselves than others. They need to make it happen. We are the one that voted for them
That is very true J'Mae. Pollution is sus.
Well of course they should stop pollution since that is the main problem but a question is where would all the waste and toxic gonna go instead of the ocean?
I think the government should help to clean salt and freshwater sources of pollution. If pollution gets out of hand then the water will no longer be drinkable and even the rain water will be polluted and un drinkable. Conservation of water is important for the future and I think the government should definitely do something.
The step a need to provide these types of problem can be done by releasing the water back into the ocean. This can in shore that the water pollution can decrease.
The government should enforce stricter rules for pollution, so that the water resources we have now, won't be affected in the later years to come. Since the world's population is forever growing, more houses are taking up spaces where water reserves were created. If this keeps happening, then there won't be much room for water to be stored.
Very good points Egypt!
Good point egypt
Very Good Point Egypt!!
The government can start planting more trees in order for more rainfall, have the community report water wastage, start making policies and investments in infrastructure of water conservation and have another catchment area in the dam. Some factors that prevent the conservation of freshwater are water pollution and wasting of the water.
I do agree that wee need to plant more trees to increase the rainfall. Good point Tarita
Yes trees need the water, just like us and we will have shade from the sun.
I strongly agree with this do to the fact trees is a why to protect the waste land also the preservation of water can also help the earth and it decrease of fresh water
I think the government should use first start using rain water like Bermuda to conserve fresh water. In Bermuda it is very easy to find fresh drinkable water to support a family while in other countries the water becomes very dirty from the people's waste and other pollution or tonics. To prevent freshwater from being difficult to find and unobtainable we can start by doing little things like recycle, clean the rivers and lakes and other freshwater supplies, being more careful of how we throw away waste and prevent oil spills from occurring.
That statement could be helpful for the future.
I argee with you Nicole, we as a people should start doing little things to help preserve the freshwater!
you have perfect suggestions!! I agree he rest of the world should Start using rain water as well. It is a very good way to get water. im not sure about recycling the water though.. once water is used I think we should get rid of it. BUT good points.
I believe the government would need to put restriction on the amount of fresh water in each household. Just like in China how households can only have one child because of over population. Pollution affects the conservation of freshwater. When people put trash in clean water sources it causes the freshwater to be polluted and unpure.
Yes this is how we can conserve more water, for each household to have for their basic needs.
I agree with you to Aaron!!! Check you paying attention to things happening in the other part of the world,(daddy helped inna) but I also think that it won't work because there are some people that waste water so they are going to consistently buy freshwater
The people who waste the freshwater will be fined by the government and I did it by myself thanks taznae👍
A-A-ron. restricting on the amount of freshwater we give people is a good idea. but with this point I have a question.. if everyone has the same amount of water wouldn't Big household run out of water faster.. That wouldn't be fair they would need more.
I feel that the government should start a movement to not pollute our waters. They should show the people the damage that will be caused if our natural water is polluted, their will be no more freshwater. We can conserve by water management. By the climate change it will increase the pressure of natural water resources.
I agree that on this situation we need water manage. Great point Felicia!
Felicia, that is so true! The government should really start a movement like that.
I agree with you. You should talk to the government about that
Very valid points Feli! I agree
What do you mean by the climate change will increase pressure fel bel?
Good point fel I agree with you!! Someone was using there thinking skills. I think with them making the no pollution a rule will be a start
I totally agree if they show people what would happen if there is no more freshwater maybe people would care more of how important and lucky they are to have a freshwater supply.
I agree with you Felicia!!! very good Point
I strongly agree with your opinion Nicole.
You know how people use their sink and there is so many leftovers of water. There should be tube where the leftover water immediately goes to the freshwater so that there is more extra water
Freshwater is at shortage, but instead of using up what little we have first, we should create distillaries to improve salt water to be convertable to freshwater.
To help stop water pollution we can not litter or put on an event where we can clean up rivers that are freshwaters.
I agree with u chinzea
We should stop pollution around the island and in the waters so we can preserve freshwater
I think that they should stop people from fishing in certain areas because this will slowly stop the pollution that is taking place. It will stop the pollution because the fisher men won't be able to drop there bags or drink cans and food rappers over board so some of the water would be clean.
As the years go on preserving water would get harder and harder if we don't come up with creative new ideas to keep water fresh.
due to the age that we are living in I personally think that the goverment should not try to preserve as much water as they do because humans and animals need water to survive.
Good point your making by making it personal.
There are many Factors that prevent freshwater consumption. One of the main factors is Pollution. There are many Runoffs from agricultural and urban areas that pollute the water quality. The amount of Construction and cutting down of tress surprisingly also affects the freshwater consumption.
Great point your making jasmaine adams, I liked how your using deforestation as one of the problems....
The government could insole Low-flow shower heads sometimes called energy-efficient shower heads as they also use less energy,Factors such as climate change will increase pressures on natural water resources especially in manufacturing and agricultural irrigation.
fresh water and fresh lakes are getting polluted by man dumping raw sewage and oil in them other things are getting dumped and ruing our fresh water supply are pesticides. So to stop the pesticides we should encourage more farmers to become organic and grow crops without the use of pesticides
I strongly recommend that we as Bermuda have a strong base foundation due to the fact that we are surrounded by water the space of the preserve great water we have is very low in order to preserve this is to set laws in place to stop the cutting down of places that have to do with water preserved place set aside for fresh water
