I’m from Guatemala. It is a beautiful country. Is a country with clean rainwater because people  take care abut the water is a healthy place the when i came here the weather is different people use many cars. using many cars makes the rain dirty. and I wonder the rainwater here is  safe to drink.


“Let’s look back on the days before pollution was such a big issue. We don’t even need to look that far back. How about the 1960s-1970s? Neighborhood children were playing in the streets, never too concerned about finding water. There was never any shortage – mountain valleys, wells and pumps were always accessible. Besides, every time it rained, they could simply look up at the sky, open their mouths and catch the rainwater!”

Many people asking if rainwater is safe to drink. The population is increasing. Water is of the most important on the world. Many country does not have potable water. Different culture collect water useful for many things like in my county. We collect rainwater so we can use it to watering plants vegetables during the spring. People use rainwater for many things. Let’s go back different country they did not have potable water even now. Children go outside and taste water some of them playing but now the parents tell their children to not go outside when is raining because is dangerous. What I think we have to save the environment  because each year the population is increasing as human we should do something to help the world we have to think about our future. And the best way is harvesting rainwater we can use for many thing like wash the car, watering plants. Flush toilet, laundry etc. to drink we have to make sure if is safe to drink.

International Water Association is a group of people that has a project trying to harvest enough water. “IWA is committed to recognising the special contributions and achievements of its members and water sector professionals, and the invaluable contribution they make to key innovations in water science and management.” According to IWA most of the people need to harvest water. that’s why the IWA make a project to save the water and the best way is to harvest water. The IWA is working hard to make a great world. people usually want a safe water to drink. In the place where there is no water IWA want the people can get water and save money.

The Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami sparked a severe nuclear accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. Three of the six reactors at the plant sustained severe core damage and released hydrogen and radioactive materials. Explosion of the released hydrogen damaged three reactor buildings and impeded onsite emergency response efforts. The accident prompted widespread evacuations of local populations, large economic losses, and the eventual shutdown of all nuclear power plants in Japan. It wasn’t until August 2015 that Japan began the controversial return to nuclear power generation. place like this there is no safe water most of the people need safe water
