Why we need to be water smart:
There has been contaminated water going around in Auckland due to all of our storms; the problem is not that we don't have enough water but that too MUCH water has been contaminated. The Problem is that silt has gotten into the dams and due to that all of Auckland needs to save and consume water. If each person uses 20 Liters less a day, this problem will be solved faster.
The Things That Could Happen If We Didn't Save Water:
If we do not start to save water now, We will end up having to boil our water every time we need to use it; This mean we will have to boil water before we drink, before we shower, before we wash our hands, before we brush our teeth; basically instead of turning on the tap we will have to boil it.
Tips On How To Be Water Smart:
- When you are going to brush your teeth, don’t leave the water running as you brush your teeth
- Take shorter showers
- If you have just washed you hands; don’t leave the tap running while you dry them
- Check for Leakages
