The observations and knowledge acquired can be divided into three parts which are wildlife, farming and water conservation.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.Besides acquiring knowledge, I realized that we should pay more attention in using the natural resources and we should put more effort on the conservation.First of all, for wildlife, helping protect our local and regional biodiversity are the main goals of KFBG in fauna conservation aspect.For the water conservation, a constructed wetland wastewater treatment system is set in KFBG.

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.It directly influences the weather and amount of potable water thereby causing water scarcity and crop failures which eventually leads to food shortages.This will make them realise the threat and motivate them to take steps in conserving water and food.Wars will emerge and will perhaps lead to the third World War which will be fought for water and food.There is an unquestionable need for us to save water and stop lavishly frivolling away with food.

In addition to water reserves at an all time low in central Texas there is an added layer of concern as it relates to water quality.It is important that current citizens recognize the need to use water in a responsible way that does not harm the essential functions of the natural ecosystem in order to preserve for generations to come.The Central Texas Sustainability Project (2009) indicates that although water consumption and conservation awareness has increased by 13% and 40% of citizens state they are concerned about water usage, long term trends remain unchanged.These historic lows of inflows and water retention creates a situation where water conservation and awareness in increasingly important yet 15% of central Texans and 19.3% of ...

Bioindicators provide useful data that for the attainment of water quality control goal which is containment of the effect of pollution and biodiversity protection through effective biodiversity management.On the other hand testing freshwater clams (Corbicula fluminea) to detect faecal pathogens in freshwater ecosystems because clams filter large volumes of water and they survive well in polluted aquatic environments is considered a very useful approach.Biological indicators should be sedentary within their habitats enabling them reflect quality of water and other ecosystems changes by pollution (Ghosh and Pattnaik 2005, Miller et al 2005).Assessment of the collected information from bioindicators is crucial and should be done using mult...

It has also reliability of having hot water through out unlike the other systems which can not provide hot water in the times of power loss or acute fuel shortage (National Renewable Energy laboratory).Using these solar powered water heaters will reduce demand of using fossil fuels, which will in turn reduce water and air pollution and also reduce heat-trapping gases hence reducing global warming (Anderson, 2002).Furthermore, solar water heaters have a large life expectancy and can have return on the investment cost.The operational costs of solar water heaters are much cheap as compared the operational cost of the other water heaters that use electricity or gases.Solar Water Heating: A Comprehensive Guide to Solar Water and Space Heating...
