    Two ways that you can conserve water are to...

    • A.

      Wash your own car instead of going to the car wash, and don't leave the water running when you brush your teeth

    • B.

      Take shorter showers, and only water your lawn occassionally

    • C.

      Don't leave the water running when you brush your teeth, and use the dishwasher instead of washing dishes by hand

    • D.

      Use the dishwasher instead of washing dishes by hand, and do laundry every day to spread out water use

    Correct Answer
    B. Take shorter showers, and only water your lawn occassionally
    Explanation
    The answer "take shorter showers, and only water your lawn occasionally" is correct because both actions contribute to conserving water. Taking shorter showers reduces the amount of water used, while only watering the lawn occasionally reduces excessive water consumption in outdoor spaces. By implementing these practices, individuals can effectively conserve water and contribute to sustainable water management.

  • 3. 

    Why might water conservation be a bigger issue in developing countries than in the developed world?

    • A.

      A) The pipes and structures needed for water transportation are not in place in developing countries.

    • B.

      B) Water treatment processes are not as sophisticated in developing nations.

    • C.

      C) Both A and B.

    • D.

      D) Neither A nor B.

    Correct Answer
    A. A) The pipes and structures needed for water transportation are not in place in developing countries.
    Explanation
    Water conservation may be a bigger issue in developing countries than in the developed world because the pipes and structures needed for water transportation are not in place in these countries. This lack of infrastructure makes it difficult to efficiently transport and distribute water to those in need. Without proper transportation systems, water may be wasted or inaccessible, leading to a greater need for conservation efforts. Additionally, the absence of sophisticated water treatment processes in developing nations can further exacerbate water scarcity and the need for conservation.

    Water conservation is something that doesn't affect people in the United States, because we have enough money to buy water.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because water conservation is important for everyone, regardless of their financial status. While it may be true that some people in the United States have the financial means to buy water, it is not a sustainable solution in the long run. Water conservation is necessary to ensure the availability of clean water for future generations and to protect the environment. Additionally, water scarcity can affect people's access to water, regardless of their financial situation. Therefore, water conservation is a concern for everyone, regardless of their financial status.

Additionally, waterborne diseases are responsible for causing the death of millions of people annually. Furthermore, a lack of clean water for bathing leads to poor hygiene, increasing the risk of disease. Therefore, all of the given reasons make clean running water a necessity.
