Being Water Smart? - Delilah

Image result for dirty water

Are you being water smart?

There has recently been a storm in Auckland and has created dirty water. Watercare dams in Hunua Ranges have been contaminated with silt. This situation we are in is very bad because if we use too much water, we will only have dirty and unhealthy water. Nobody wants that! Here are some ways we can save water and save our water supply

  • Take shorter showers
  • Don’t keep the tap running when brushing your teeth or shaving  (this can save 6 litres of water per minute)
  • When washing your car, go to the car wash instead of doing it yourself

If we waste water, we will have to drink dirty water and dirty water can give you LOTS of bad diseases like…

  • Cholera
  • Amoebiasis
  • Dysentery
  • Hepatitis
  • Lead Poisoning
  • Malaria
  • Polyomavirus Infection
  • Waterborne
  • Guinea worm
