Water is a valuable gift of nature. All beings and plants need water for living. We require water for different purposes. We can live for a few days without food. But we can’t live without water. We need water for our daily activities like bathing, cooking, washing, etc. Besides, water is a must for agricultural purposes. We don’t get any food if there is no water.
But people do not use water sparingly. People wastewater. In urban areas, we can see people keep taps open. At times people do not close the taps open. At times people do not close the taps properly. They keep at the taps half-open.
Humans also pollute water in many ways. Insecticides, weedicides, and fertilizers used in large quantities in farming are some examples of ways of water pollution. Some factories release waste material into waterways. People dump garbage into waterways.
We should control ways of water pollution. We can do this by helping to keep our sources of water clean. In agriculture, we should not overuse chemicals. Another way of preventing water pollution is to build cleaning treatment plants in factories.
If we stop throwing waste into lakes, rivers, and seas they will be clean and beautiful forever. It’s high time now that the government should impose severe laws to protect our waterways.
People who pollute waterways should be punished severely. Big public awareness programs should be organized to teach the public about the value of water.
Speech on: Water is our life blood.
