Question: Water is an increasingly valuable resource, but people continue to waste a lot of it. Some governments want to impose permanent water restrictions on domestic and agricultural use. Others feel we should put more effort into recycling water. Discuss these views and give your opinion.
Although we have thought about the sustainability of the water for a long time, it remains many arguments to preserve the water between nations, private sectors, and civilians. This trend is now one of the biggest issues because the consumption of water has increased. There are many arguments that we should impose permanent sanction on domestic use and agricultural use or put more effort into recycling water.
In terms of the permanent water restrictions, it includes some problems when we enforced the restriction. According to the article (Urbanworkbench, August 6,2008), it was stated that the restriction would be an unfair factor, if we imposed permanent restriction on particular target. When we discuss this sort of question, the solution might be placing a tax on particular season or cut out the usage of water consumption individually. These topics have discussed for a long time because of the advent of environmental problems.
On the other hand, in regard to recycle the water, there are some defects of recycling technology in the psychological point of view. For instance, as saying by the article (National Geographic, January 31, 2012), water recycling technology has advanced to the point where waste water can be rendered safe for drinking. However, legislative and psychological hurdles will need to be overcome before widespread adoption would be happen. People might not regard recycled water as clean water.

Therefore, there are many aspects of water problems, which need to be discussed in many ways. However, in any aspects of the problems and concerns, the priority should not only the sustainability of water, but also the acceptance of consuming recycled water.
