Water Resource Plan
Evelyn Hillard
University of Phoenix

My selection of water resource is water pollution. This is cause by different problem when we dump garage, chemicals in the water, oil, and human waste in rivers and ocean. Water pollution have many different causes it makes it hard sometimes to resolve this issue. Sewage is one of the main causes of water pollution. This type of water pollution affects our lives in many ways. Over billions of people on this earth dispose of sewage waste a lot. When you dispose of sewage in any lakes, rivers, and ocean it takes a affect on our health and living condition. Many people do not realize that water pollution is very important and many people can get sick from it. I believe a good management plan will alleviate the problem of water pollution. Water pollution needs to have strict laws of waste and fuel dumping. They need certain people to go out and do testing on these lakes, rivers, and ocean to make sure that no one is dumping anything into the water. We should also have a machine that clean the water every so often. Making sure that it will collect all the trash and waste. The government needs to make s person pay a fine if they get caught polluting the water. I do not understand of where anyone should have a opposing view of water pollution. My view will be making sure that this world stop polluting the water. This problem is for our safety and health. There are many people who do no even care if the water is being polluted. How can this world or the government let some types of water pollution go on. Some people do not realize that it is a major problem in this world today. It is killing living creatures that have to live in water. I think that everybody in this world should come together to make sure that no one is polluting…...

Water Plan

...Water Resource Plan Groundwater consists of surface water of lakes and streams and the underground aquifers that feed them. Because groundwater is believed to be infinitely renewable in many areas of the world, the threat to it is not recognized. This is extremely dangerous because, in reality, groundwater cannot be naturally replenished and plans must be formed to protect it. Many above ground reservoirs that are used as municipal water sources are feed by what are classified as “fossil aquifers”. These aquifers hold water that is, in some cases, hundreds of thousands of years old and they are minimally recharged if at all by surface precipitation that must penetrate hundreds of feet to reach the aquifer. It is estimated that up to 30% of water can be removed from lakes, rivers, and aquifers and not adversely affect the replenishment rate. Based on declining world precipitation estimates and with current and future municipal water consumption, there is no way these water sources can survive indefinitely. One of the key elements of insuring that groundwater will be available in the future is by developing a replenishment plan. Because of the precipitation estimates, natural replenishment seems unreliable and therefore a human methodical process must be employed to make wastewater, meaning municipally treated water that just goes down the drain, useable again. This is known as Artificial Recharge of Reclaimed Municipal Water and there are two types. The most common,......

Energy Resource Plan

...energy especially when it is produced by non-renewable resources. We use non-renewable fuels to crank our cars, to hear our homes and to cool our homes. When pollutants from these non-renewable fuels are released into the air it contaminate the air we breathe along with the water that we drink. With that being said it is important to conserve energy to keep the air that we breathe cleaner. Conserving energy is also important because it reduces the electric bill and the gas bill which in turns save you money. Using renewable resources are the better ways to conserve energy and to maintain a healthier atmosphere for all humans, plants, and animals. There are two types of energy resources and they are renewable and non-renewable resources. There are three top renewable resources and they are but not limited to solar energy, wind energy and hydropower. Solar energy comes directly and indirectly from the sun which contributes to the growth of plants and trees. Wind energy is the movement of air when warm air descends and cooler air comes in. This type of energy is beneficial for sailboats. Hydropower comes directly from the energy of flowing water which make electricity. All of these renewable resources come directly from the earth. Non-renewable resources are coal, petroleum, natural gas, and nuclear energy. These resources come from underground and most of them derive from the fossil of dead plants and animals. This resources are not reusable which causes them to take......

Water Resource Plan

...------------------------------------------------- Water Resource Plan SCI/275 October 6, 2013 Katrina Baron October 6, 2013 Katrina Baron The issue of freshwater pollution is a serious level of concern. The Environmental Protection Agency has projected that water pollution will be as high in 2025 as it was in 1968, which is before the passage of the Clean Water Act. We must comprehend the problems and become part of the resolution in order to combat this pollution. There are many different types of water pollution, with that being said the quality and quantity of our clean freshwater resources are depleting. The water pollution is not just a local issue but rather a global problem that does require serious attention in order for the cleanup of these contaminates to be anywhere near successful. According to Pielou, (1998) “The UN reports that one person in six lives without regular access to safe drinking water.” There are many essential changes that are needed that are not going to come easily. We need to remember that water is essential to the survival of all living things. We need to do everything we can to maintain the quality of clean water. The world today has various categories of water pollution that affects it. We do recognize this reality, but humans still ignore this problem by polluting the rivers and lakes. Many humans throw their trash into the lakes and rivers when they are fishing and camping. The main contributors of water pollution are classified......

Water Resources - Overfishing

...Water Resources - Overfishing Science 275 3/2/10 Kenneth Whitehall Water Resources - Overfishing In recent decades the method and technologies involved in commercial fishing has advanced tremendously. With a limited time in the fishing seasons, fisheries are forced to catch as many fish as they can as fast as they can. This, along with the growing population of people and their appetites for fish, is causing a major problem with overfishing. Overfishing is the process of catching fish faster then they can reproduce. It is fishing that unsustainably depletes fish stocks or that damages the ocean environment. Overfishing is causing irreversible negative effects within the ocean waters of the earth. Every living thing plays its part in the entire food chain from the smallest of organisms to the largest of animal. From the bottom of the food chain to the top all species are both predator and prey. Every living thing is connected in some fashion and relies on each other to complete the circle of life. When a part of this circle is either in shortage or is missing altogether, there is a break in the chain and everything pays the price in the end. Overfishing has become a major problem in recent decades. The damage that overfishing has already caused in the oceans is still often a surprise to environmental experts. Globally, 90% of large fish are already gone (Festa, Regas, & Boomhower, 2008). As the fishing stocks slowly disappear, commercial fisheries are......

The pollutants range from municipal and industrial wastes such as from oil and gas fields, toxic industrial wastes, landfill leachate, irrigation return waters, and wastes from well drilling, harbor dredging, and excavation for drainage systems. The most significant pollutant throughout the regions of the United States is toxic industrial wastes and wastes from well drilling, harbor dredging, and excavation for drainage systems. Sources of Groundwater Contamination shows an illustration of the way pollutants are entering our groundwater directly or indirectly. Industrial and agricultural waste causes direct pollution which in return causes such actions as loss of wastelands, acid rain, landfill leaching, and faulty sewers. Global warming and drought can cause just as much harm because drought causes salt intrusion that leads to increased metals and acids that can ruin your drinking source. Protecting American’s from Danger in the Drinking Water is about a small town in California named Hinkley. The company Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) and workers at PG&E's nearby compressor station had......

Energy Resource Plan

...Energy Resource Plan Andria Cogar Axia College Our utility bills have been increasing in past months that have raised many questions about the cause. Is no one in the family is turning off the lights when a room is not being occupied, doing less than a full load of laundry, and not taking shorter showers? Energy conservation is on the rise, even though few try to stick with what will make the environment better. Conserving energy can be helpful in a number of ways; whether it be to save money for a family vacation, decreasing pollutions in the air we breathe; or just stopping the amount of green house gases being emitted into our atmosphere. We are using nonrenewable energy to supply us with energy to cook, clean, and keeping us warm; without even thinking of its consequences, which in turn will not last forever. There are distinctions between nonrenewable and renewable energy that will help in the future to ensure a better way of life. Nonrenewable energy is energy that comes from the ground, and is not replaced in a short amount of time. Fossil fuels are the main source of nonrenewable energy, which includes; oil, natural gas, and coal. Steaming from plants, and animals’ decomposed remains; that have been in the soil for millions of years. Renewable energy is energy is energy that replenishes itself automatically from natural processes. Examples include; wind, sunshine, biological processes, flowing water, and geothermal heat flows are all methods of renewable......

...Effects of Water Resources Neal Wolf SCI/275 08/09/2015 Dr. Bryan Taylor Video The video about protecting Americans from danger in drinking water was focused on the effects in the town of Hinkley, CA due to PG&E pollutants. The plant releases tons of Chromium 6 into the environment in Hinkley, CA. Hinkley is suffering because they do not have drinking water, nor do they have sustainable conditions for living due to the pollutants. The environmental issues presented in the video affect me directly because I live in California. The water is very limited due to our ongoing drought and contaminating clean drinking water only causes more issues. I do not live in Hinkley, CA so the issues of drinking water do not affect me directly in that sense. I think that there needs to be closer management over companies and their affects onto the environment. The diagram focuses on the sources of groundwater contamination. There are three areas that deal with groundwater contamination. The three areas of groundwater contamination are natural activities, direct pollution, and indirect pollution. The environmental issues discussed in the diagram affect me directly because pesticides, chemicals. and groundwater pollution are all issues in California. The issues in the diagram that do not affect me directly are the drinking water. The drinking water where I live is not the greatest, but I have my water run through two different filters to prevent any chances of contamination.......

High population growth; large for profit corporations; and lack of enforcement for conservation programs; among other things, threaten the sustainability of clean water resources, onshore and off. With the use of an integrated management program people can develop a sustained use of coastal resources and perpetual maintenance initiatives. Sustainable development encourages social well-being along with economic prosperity while minimizing the impact on the ecosystem. With a plan that is tailored to meet the needs of local residents and the needs of the environment, the processes can create a level of cohabitation between man and nature. Through the processes of arrangement, coordination, and review; coastal development can be utilized in a manner that provides a benefit to the people and the environment. Arrangement involves a detailed plan for development and resource protection, including policies, goals, legal authorization and an enforcement mechanism. Coordination with governing agencies; including permit issuers and inspectors; will insure the safety of the resources. Review; including an environmental impact assessment and a review mechanism; insures that the arrangement and coordination have been......

...JAMAICA TRANSPORT HORACE M. WHITE AMERICAN MILITARY UNIVERSITY HRMT600 Human Resource Management Overall planning context Like all Organizations, Jamaica Transport (KIN) constantly has to adapt to external and internal changes. External changes such as economic situations, increased global commerce, new security threats or emerging environmental priorities impact directly on the organization’s business and HR plans. Internal changes, such as the need to carry out the organization’s business differently through risk management systems or a shrinking pool of skilled employees in our workforce, have equally important impacts on KIN’s business and HR plans. KIN must ensure that its current and future work, workforce and workplace are properly aligned and integrated with its goals and priorities. It has become clear that the organization’s most critical challenge is to recruit and retain the skilled workforce required to keep pace with change. This is further complicated by retirements, which bring loss of expertise, particularly among managers, as well as professional and technical employees. However, it is important to note that given the recent shift in the economic situation, the risk associated with these challenges might be diminished. Living in a changing environment brings new opportunities that might be reflected in the need to adjust and realign KIN’s focus and strategies. This reality requires strategic responses through a rigorous and...
