write a report on water conservation in my city in about 200 words

Dear student,

Such questions need to be attempted on your own to test your creative writing skills. However, these points might help you elaborate:
  • Rain water harvesting has been taken up by the municipal authorities to conserve water. All new buildings are passed by the authorities only if they have a rain water harvesting arrangement.
  • The sewage and drain water is recycled to water public parks.
  • The citizens have been made aware through advertisements in the local newspapers and television about the importance of saving water by practising simple habits.
  • Leakage in pipes is to be checked, washing of cars and scooters can be done with water filled in a bucket and avoiding use of hose pipes.
  • While brushing or bathing, everybody must take care not to keep the tap running.

House Bill 1215 was ratified by the North Carolina General Assembly on October 3,

2002. House Bill 1215, now Session Law 2002-167, contains a number of provisions related towater conservation and water supply planning, motivated by North Carolinas experience withthe extreme drought of 2002 and a heightened awareness of the need to focus more attention onassuring that North Carolina has an adequate water supply for future needs.After experiencing dryer than normal weather for four years, the drought reached acritical point in 2002. During that year, North Carolina experienced many record lows for streamflows and ground water levels. In some cases these new drought records go back 50 to 75 years.In some of North Carolinas river basins, the State faced a danger that storage capacity in majorreservoirs would be exhausted, leading to a disastrous drop in water availability for critical watersupply needs. Agriculture experienced such severe drought-related impacts that the U.S.Department of Agriculture issued a disaster declaration for many North Carolina counties atGovernor Easleys request.During the 2002 drought, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and theDrought Monitoring Council developed a 3-tier classification of communities according to theirdrought vulnerability. Thirty communities were included in Tier 1, which included those mostvulnerable to running out of water. Tier 2 contained 88 communities with a serious butsomewhat lesser degree of vulnerability. Tier 3 included 152 other communities of concern.Local governments, other water users, and state agencies responded to the drought challenge byincreasing their monitoring of drought conditions, intensifying communication about droughtdangers, and coordinating drought response measures. Many communities took vigorous steps toassure water supply availability for essential needs during the drought and to reduce theirvulnerability to future droughts.Against this background of concern regarding drought and the adequacy of future watersupplies, House Bill 1215 dealt with two types of water conservation that are sometimeslumped together, but are in fact quite different.The first type of water conservation is addressed by Section 3 of House Bill 1215, whichdeals with water conservation efforts necessary on a short-term basis during droughts or otheremergency situations when water supply suddenly becomes reduced. Section 3 calls for theEnvironmental Management Commission to develop an administrative rule establishingminimum standards and practices for water conservation and water reuse for the followingclasses of water users: publicly and privately owned water supply systems, state agencies, localgovernments, business and industrial users, and agricultural and horticultural users.not exacetly 200 words bit i think this is enoughthumb plz
