Task：Some people think that people should be given right to use fresh water as they like. Others believe governments should control toughly over the use of fresh water.Discuss both views and give your own opinion.
Fresh water, as one of the most valuable resources, sustains human life. Unfortunately, the problem of water shortage has confronted contemporary people so that some of them assert that it is a must to ensure the use of fresh water is under the strict control of government.
Due to the higher demand of water for industrial manufacture, daily life, as well as the destruction of water-depended ecosystem, fresh water which is theoretically deemed as the renewable natural resource tends to run out one day. What’s worse, the abusive use of water is common to see in the farmland, factory and household. Supposing that government takes no actions to deter this water crisis, what would happen in the future? Would human being be able to use water as they like? In order to combat the deteriorating situation, it is believed the authority is supposed to regulate the maximum quantity of water consumption in industrial production; adopt high-technology aimed at recycling used water in farmland.
On the other hand, it is fair to say people do have the right to use fresh water as they want. The main reason lies in that the restriction of water use might lead to poor sanitary conditions and the spread of diseases. In addition, it lowers people’s living standards and causes a lot of inconvenience. For instance, showers are only available in certain two hours of a day; flowers can only be watered once a week.
From my perspective, although the budget for advancing water-saving technique aggravates government’s financial burden, it is their obligation to tackle the issue. Apart from the measures to control the consumption of fresh water, large-scale educational campaigns should be held to instill the awareness of saving water in public.
