Installing water meters in every department (if possible) for example, is a good way to monitor the establishment’s water consumption, by doing so we can determine the monthly water consumption and cost of our workplace, if we are aware of this we’ll know what department consumes too much water and necessary action will be taken immediately.Leaks because of poor plumbing is also a cause of water wastage in a lot of homes and buildings, we must regularly maintain plumbing fixtures to make sure that no leaks will come up.This assessment is important in order for us to find out the resource allocation for the said project and determine the costs associated with environmental conservation.We are currently facing a lot of environmental issues...

For the water conservation, a constructed wetland wastewater treatment system is set in KFBG.To sum up, the field trip helps experience how to implement the conservation of natural resources, for example, the rescue of wildlife, the constructed wetland wastewater treatment system and different methods of farming.This system uses a wide range of wetland plants to act as biological filters for wastewater treatment, inspired by the water purification function of natural wetlands.Thus, different plants can be placed according to their condition needed such as their sunlight requirements and water amount requirements.The observations and knowledge acquired can be divided into three parts which are wildlife, farming and water conservation.

Pump hydro storage can be design and build in many ways; the lower reservoirs can be lakes, rivers, underground caverns, or oceans while the upper reservoirs can be any higher elevated geological formation capable of storing significant amount of water .Pump Hydro Storage: This method make use of wind turbines which provide renewable energy that propel and pumps water to the upper reservoir, the wind energy is being converted to potential energy for later use, this method is similar to the utility practice of pumping water to an upper reservoir during off peak demand when electrical rates are lower and then releasing the water through a small hydro turbine to generate electricity during peak demand hours when the rates are higher (epover...

Using water as an example, describe how matter can change from one form to another.As heat energy is added to water molecules (boiling of water), they begin to move more rapidly and break apart from each other with more ease.For example, water.It will always resurface in another form such as acid rain or polluted well water.Water stored behind a dam, the chemical energy of the food we consume, and the gasoline that we putting in our cars are all examples of potential energy.

Today the pressurized fluid ejected down hole is almost wholly sand and water.Large quantities of water, sand and chemical additives are stored near the well for use as the fracturing blend.A steel or cemented casing surrounds the underground piping to prevent chemical leaks into surrounding rock or water wells.These concerns seem to be validated in a 2011 Duke University study which found methane levels 17 times higher in private water wells that were within 1,000 yards of a drilling operation.Fracturing is used to access or augment productivity in petroleum, water and natural gas.

In the survey titled “Climate Change, Water and Food Security”, climate change will reduce the amount of water in river run-offs and aquifer rechargers in the Mediterranean and semi-arid areas of the Americas, Australia and Southern Africa.This will make them realise the threat and motivate them to take steps in conserving water and food.One key area requires countries to implement improve and maintain water accounts, which involves collecting data on amount of water used, transferred, etc.Wars will emerge and will perhaps lead to the third World War which will be fought for water and food.Due to water scarcity, farmers tend to pull out more water from the ground thereby depleting the ground water resources and destroying the water table...

a) Minimizing the water consumption by the tourism sector: As it has been discussed above that the tourists actually consume more resources than what locals do so to restrict it to certain level this policy includes, Limiting the water hungry facilities such as golf, and swimming pools Encourages the installation of water through technology which has low flow showers and toilets.It has been proved that tourists do use 15 to 20 times more water than the locals, due to that most of the tourist’s destinations in India are providing limited fresh water for the tourists.e) It is very much necessary to have balance between the development and conservation.This policy includes the priorities such as: It actually helps to maintain the high conse...

For example: when Augusta was asked about sharing its water with Atlanta, the answer was “no way.Its implementation is the main problem of not being embraced by many local jurisdictions, like in North Georgia’s water planning district.Without appropriate foresight, there is now a serious water crisis that Georgians are facing.Another solution currently in use on a much smaller scale during drought seasons, is interbasin water transfers — removal of water from a plentiful river basin and releasing it into a basin in need.A highly emotional solution since every city/county wants to maintain control over its own natural water supply.

Although we can certainly make the environment cleaner, the law of conservation of matter says we will always be faced with pollution of some sort.This results from the law of conservation of matter: In any physical or chemical change, matter is neither created nor destroyed but merely changed from one form to another.But according to the first law of conservation of energy, in any ordinary physical or chemical process is neither created nor destroyed but merely change from one form to another.The process of breaking down food such as sugars to simpler molecules, such as CO2 and water, releasing potential energy in the process, is called respiration.Drink some water, eat some food, run to class.
