Charlotte’s Clean Water Initiative: Reduce and Report Pollution

wedding-2072407_1920

For the past several years, the Queen City – Charlotte, North Carolina – has been working to improve water quality for all. This includes reducing water contaminants as well as restoring the flow of water through the city’s concrete maze via its many streams and creeks. But, it is not just a government effect as residents and visitors are encourage to get involved.

Reducing and reporting pollution is an easy way to help improve our city and, dare I say, save the world! We will review ways you can reduce water pollution and how to report a problem.

Homeowners, property owners, and even farmers can implement “green” care for lawns, landscaping and crops. By reducing the amount of fertilizer and pesticide, you will also be decreasing the amount of contaminates that can runoff into streams and creeks. If these polluting substances were to go unchecked then the results would be catastrophic to aquatic life, and eventually effecting the entire ecosystem which will jeopardize the well being of humans and animals alike.

In addition to “green” practices, people can also be careful not to cause excess debris to enter our waterways. People are also asked to help prevent muddy excess mud from enter waterways by reporting muddied streets. Some people don’t realize that rain water goes from the sewer drains straight to local lakes and streams. They also may not know that Charlotte’s drinking water systems start with pumping water from Lake Norman and Mountain Island Lake.

The Risk of a Cheap Water Softener

Buying a cheap water softener system may appear to be a smart investment. However, it is important to consider the repercussions of such an investment. Saving a few bucks may wind up being very costly in the long run. Here is a look of some of the risks that come with the purchase of a cheap water softener.

Lack of power

Water softeners are powered by motors. A cheaper water softener may not look different to the ordinary consumer, but internally, they can be quite different. A lot of that relates to the motor and when that fails prematurely, repair is often more expensive than buying a brand-new water softener as a replacement. The risk of buying a water softener with a cheap motor is considered a financial risk because the longevity of the product is compromised….
