My hometown is famous for springs. In the centre of our city, there are a group of springs located together. They all flow into one lower pool. People name it Black Tiger Spring. It has benete a symbol for my city and attracted crowds of local citizens and tourists.
Summer is the best time to visit the spring, especially on a hot day, because spring water makes the air cool down, plus there are trees providing shelters. All these have contributed to the popularity of this place. People living nearby like to nete to fetch spring water. It’s also a paradise for fishing lovers. Old men could spend a whole morning there fishing. They seem to enjoy themselves a lot. At weekends, English learners nete and get together to have English corner. Calligraphy lovers practice writing characters on the ground with a huge brush pen and spring water as ink.
A few decades ago, there were even more springs flowing. For one time, the rapid developing industries consumed a lot of water. Some springs therefore benete dry. However, in recent years, the local government has been working on reconstructing the city’s underground water system to make dried springs flow again. They did a good job. Springs now nete back into our life.
I was there last July. It rained slightly that day, which made the trip kind of romantic, as you could see rain needles dipping into the water surface. I walked along the pool, feeling so peaceful in mind. I like the place, and I will go there again.
Do you think people use more water today than they did before (e.g., 20 or 50 years ago)?
I think so. First of all, industry is the largest user of water. We are now having more industries. Industry requires a great amount of water. So, more water is being used. The second largest user of water is domestic use. People use more, drink more, and most sadly, waste more.
Do you think it's important to try to save (conserve) water? (Why?)
It is of vital importance for human beings to save water. We need water – our lives depend on it. We all know that the world’s population is getting larger day by day. More water is being consumed. At the same time, there are many places on this world where people are suffering from lack of drinking water. Water is a precious resource. It is urgent to save water from being wasted.
How can people save water?
Water conservation has two aspects: one, use water efficiently so that there is enough for the needs of all living things; two, keep freshwater clean, so that it can continue to support life on Earth. As an ordinary citizen, I appreciate what my family does in saving water. We reuse used water. It’s simple. I’ve always believed that if every family devotes its own effort, water saving will no longer be a mission impossible.
