Water Crisis Essay

868 words - 4 pages

We take advantage of the amount of water we have by using it for unnecessary things. Most people are oblivious to the water crisis or just don’t care. We use water for things like aquariums, water parks, and for maintaining golf courses, while there are people out there who struggle to just take a bath. About half a billion people live in countries where the water is scarce and by 2025 it is estimated to increase to three billion because of the increasing population, which is expected to be 9 billion by then (Hanjra, 2010).

One way which is used by Mark Esoda, superintendent of the Atlanta Country Club, is an installment of monitors that prevent sprinklers from starting once it has rained (Kaufman, 2009). He also sends out workers to use watering cans, on areas where dry spots appear on the green, instead of turning on the sprinklers (Kaufman, 2009). Mr. Williams, the director Marriott's Stone Mountain public courses, has another effective way to conserve water (Kaufman, 2009). He lets the native grasses take over; he doesn’t mow the grass off the fairways and keeps his grass cut slightly higher than most courses (Kaufman, 2009). With his methods he has decreased water consumption by 45% in two golf...
