"We have no
evidence that these chemicals that we
using for treatments are harmful at these levels," says Kapin. But we
also have no proof that they aren't� But I say that we
bother because the pollution in the waters might be less harmful to the
environment than the treatment or vice versa. Did you know how hard
scientists work on cleaning the waters? $25,000,000.00 went to replace
the aging reservoir with two concrete tanks to hold all the treated
water. In fact, scientist came up with a treatment to get rid of
pollutants like bacteria and heavy metals. Unfortunately, the
pollutants do not get rid of most of them. This treatment for water is
really just wasting it. Remember that you should never waste water. You
don't have to wait to stop it.
Did you ever wonder
how much water is on this planet?
Water is the most plentiful element on Earth. It covers more than 70
percent of the planet. Even though that it sounds like a lot,
Demolition of the cities used 35 gallons of our Gallon Bay Street
Reservoir that is our primary source of drinking water for 90, 000
people which is way vulnerable. Now, next time you take a shower, try
to only stay in for 10 minutes or less; you can set a timer if
best for you because remember water is vulnerable.
