As Austin goes into Stage 1 watering restrictions as part of their Drought Contingency Plan, here’s how we can help save water for the future.
The value of a water drop is appreciated more by the third-world’s middle and poor classes. So much to learn from the bucket baths vs. unlimited minutes, if not hours, of shower baths and from storing water in containers with the once-an-hour-a-day water supply vs. 24×7 uninterrupted availability.
Diminishing western and eastern ghats and fertile agricultural lands turning into concrete jungles in the name of real estate in India is the cause of abnormal weather conditions. I can sense Austin (Texas) going down the same road:
Remember, “A true conservationist is a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children.” One has no right to abuse natural resources in the name of freedom. Being responsible is the name of the game.
