Meter and Substance Detector

Several campaigns for water conservation has commenced through time. However, it is a given fact that the salvation for the earth’s resources basically lie on the hands of the humans, being considered as the vanguards of the environment. However, due to unforeseen circumstances brought upon by human activities, advocates for water conservation and innovation consistently seek for means to at least help the burden of the earth and humankind. One of the major problems that rise in residents with regard to water supply is contamination and overconsumption (McKone, 2000).

Consequently, these are problems arise due to natural conditions of the earth as well as with unexpected circumstance brought about by weather conditions or inevitable malfunctions of materials which cause leakages, abandoning the house leaving the faucet open, and other sort of the like (White, 1999). With this, water is wasted and sometimes, the whole community suffers from the “misuse” leading to various complications. In biology, the rise of bacteria often surmounts due to stagnant water and it cannot be easily detected by the water district, not unless there has been cases reported due to “water dilemma. ”

The Proposal Through the innovation aimed on the increase of technical and administrative productivity, the following may be given much focus and attention onto: water system improvement and expansion, customer satisfaction, full-scale use of information and communications technology through the use of a scale device connected to the water department capable of detecting viral entities and abnormal range of water consumption on houses (Shorrocks-Taylor et al. , 2002). In essence, it shall not only help the residents pay much on water consumption, thus it shall also help the water department conserve water while saving the earth’s life.

With such device, the water department shall be able to track any suspicious substance on the pipelines through a “light indicator” wherein the inhabitants will be able to identify and give the department a query and a warning that there seems to be something different on their water. In the light, the problem shall be attended right away without even waiting for a certain circumstance by which an individual shall suffer from water-diseases and help the whole community at that.

Moreover, for “unusual” water consumption, the water department will identify any form of leakages or “misuse” saving the water supply of the town. Or in some cases, the inhabitants themselves will be the one to report the “problem” in their water system given with such indicator. It is not all the time that they have the chance to check all the pipes. Strengths and Weaknesses Consequently, like any other technology or proposal, criticism, scrutiny and deliberation will come in handy. But through the help of those who are experts in creating devices and detecting bacteria.

With the cooperation of the government, and the interest of the residents to collaborate with the project, it will not only help those in the present but in long-time series as well (McKone, 2000). It may cost a bit of a price, but then, through the help perhaps of the government, it is not far from reality. Water is important entity in life (Smith and Burns, 2002). If individuals of today can buy their children technological gadgets for recreation, how much more for a life-saving entity attached on their water meter?

With the horrors drought, and the unpredictable change of weather plus the rise of bacteria in anything on the ground (Wagner and Hewlett, 1999), it is always safe to have them detected rather than regret of being ill in the future. Saving lives while saving money and helping the community is a sure win in this perception—other countries might also follow the leap towards innovation and life preservation.
