Local Environmental Issue
The environmental problem afflicting the area where I live is major; it has to deal with
the water shortage for farmers and any family living around here. The real problem does not
originate from the exact area where I live; it deals with the lack of water in the lakes further
north west of here. Since the lake releases so much water during the irrigation periods for the
farmers they close their gates during the winter months which dry up the Rio Grande every year.
I feel that this is a direct effect f having so many farms in the area. The world needs the
food and produce these farmers produce, however there should be a limit on the water usage in
order to try and save our most valuable natural resource. The farmers values are somewhat to
blame for this; they all fought to receive almost free water rights in this area. The going rate for
unlimited water usage is only 100 dollars a month and an annual fee of 1500 dollars. If I were to
be billed for the same amount of water usage, my bill would be in the thousands every month.
Everyone needs to work together to stop the over indulgence of water usage, not just in this area
but in any area of the world. One would expect that with a small population like we have here,
there would be plenty of water to allow the river to flow all year.
