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.984 or The Pollution Control Law, this is also known as the Pollution Control Decree of 1978 is a national policy that is aimed to prevent, avoid, and control pollution of water, air, and land for the more effective utilization of the resources in the country.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 neces...

At the farm level, water management should be made compulsory.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.Drip irrigation and water sprinklers are effective.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.Wars will emerge and will perhaps lead to the third World War which will be fought for water and food.

Lakes provide critical habitat for an amazing array of plants and animals including bacteria, fungi, algae, plankton, mussels, snails, crustaceans, insects, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals (cited in “Biodiversity Conservation in Lake Watersheds,” n.d.).In conclusion, recovery of the lake ecosystem should be facilitated not only naturally but through the intervention of humans to make restoration more abrupt and systematic.Usually lakes are surrounded by forests and some forms have watersheds near them where water is collected and could serve as nourishment for living things.Humans can ban dynamite fishing which is not only dangerous to the lake but to humans themselves.After all, humans benefit much from the lake ecosystem ...

The third rule is that the trait must give the guppy a higher level of fitness and more able to pass on the trait to its offspring, which is true here because in dangerous water the darker colorations will help the guppy blend in and stay alive while the brighter guppies will be targeted more and in safe waters the lightest colored of the guppies will attract more mates to help pass the trait along to their offspring (Futuyuma 2009).(Why Does Evolution Occur.Date Accessed, March 27, 2014) .(Zimmerman 2012.Date Accessed, February 25, 2014) .

Hand removal with tools can be successful but it takes a long time, is very labour intensive and would cost a lot if it was attempted on a large scale (Department of Conservation, n.d.).Spartina thwarts seaward drainage through this process, which will eventually lead to flooding by trapped backed-up water (Partridge, 1987, p.574).Although through grazing the Spartina biomass is reduced, it does not kill the plants (Department of Conservation, n.d.).The physical removal of Spartina has been attempted on many scales, which includes “hand pulling, digging out individual plants using hand implements and the use of mechanical excavators” (Department of Conservation, n.d.).Besides that, Spartina has been used as cattle crop in Northland previ...
