Banki-Moon explained that more effort needs to be made to improve water security
(PRWEB UK) 28 May 2013
It has been reported in the Guardian that the caution came on the International Day of Biological Diversity. Ban Ki-moon explained that more effort needs to be made to improve water security, claiming that in the society we live in, demand often far outweighs supply and water quality does not always meet minimum standards. Climate change is already adding to this problem through rainfall disruption, soil moisture and glaciers melting. Diverse weather conditions are also making agriculture harder and extreme conditions are hampering water storage. Further problems are faced by the fact that most energy generation requires water.
Ban Ki-moon builds on his point further, stating that “Although seemingly abundant, only a tiny amount of the water on our planet is easily available as freshwater.”
Providing efficient and reliable Watford emergency plumbers, Plumber 24 Hours also offers its service around the country, attending to a variety of plumbing issues and emergencies. The specialists also have a strong commitment to providing their customers with advice and information on the industry and were of course, concerned to hear the recent news. A representative from the agency shares their thoughts on the matter.
“It is scary to think that despite the amount of water on our planet, we could be faced with the prospect of running out of clean freshwater. There are ways that the average family can cut back on their water consumption and make a difference. Using a bowl rather than running the hot tap when washing up, as well as reusing unused water for things like watering plants can all make a difference.
“Dripping taps waste over 5,500 litres of water each year, which in turn wastes money, so remember to regularly check for leaks and get these attended to as soon as possible.”
