Drawing water saving
Using the annotated templates
at the link below - design Water Savings Reminders to give water
saving tips and encourage a reduction in water use.

reminders should be designed to encourage water saving, using the
explanation on each sheet as a guide for the picture.
When you have completed the reminders, your challenge is to find
appropriate places to put the reminders. This could include around
school or at home.
The most critical time to save water by decreasing water use is
in the summer months when rainfall is low and rivers, streams, lakes
and ponds are in danger of drying up. It takes approximately two
years for new animals to colonise and build up their homes again
after a river has dried up (Death
of a River E06). The aim is therefore to reduce the water that
humans require in their everyday lives so that wildlife does not
suffer at this crucial time.
The natural environment
has made Devon and Cornwall very attractive areas, as such the number
of people staying in these counties increases tremendously over
the summer months when water supply is at its most vulnerable. Between
7-8 million visitors come to Devon and Cornwall over the course
of the year, a lot of these people come for their summer holidays.
