Wa­ter is life

The New Age (Gauteng) - - COMMENT -

ON MON­DAY, Septem­ber 18, the world comes to­gether to put wa­ter qual­ity on top of the agenda and brings its im­por­tance to the fore by cel­e­brat­ing World Wa­ter Mon­i­tor­ing Day.

Ba­si­cally, it’s about wa­ter qual­ity and the pro­tec­tion of the world’s wa­ter re­sources. The day is a re­minder that it’s time to check your wa­ter and a way to make sure ev­ery­one has ac­cess to clean fresh wa­ter. Qual­ity wa­ter is crit­i­cal for a healthy na­tion.

This means we must strive to have healthy and fresh wa­ter in our wa­ter re­sources to en­sure a healthy en­vi­ron­ment and com­mu­ni­ties. We need to keep our wa­ter re­sources clean and healthy by not pol­lut­ing them and to pro­tect them from any pol­lu­tants and alien ob­jects.

Let us pro­tect our wa­ter re­sources and re­frain from pol­lut­ing them to en­sure we all have ac­cess to fresh, clean and high qual­ity wa­ter for the ben­e­fit of all liv­ing be­ings and the en­vi­ron­ment.

Wa­ter is life and has no sub­sti­tute.
