More than a dozen cities across the United States have water conservation certificates, often issued by the Environmental Protection Agency, that allow water to be used to protect people from contaminants or harmful substances.
But as the EPA’s website shows, these certificates don’t give you the right to stop polluting or other pollutants.
Instead, they give you a certificate that allows you to stop those pollutants from being released.
But with some cities, including Houston, struggling with rising water bills and dwindling resources, they are asking the EPA to change the certificate to a water conservation one.
That change is expected to be approved next month.
It will make it harder for the city of Houston to raise revenue to pay for water conservation.
Some people think that by changing the certificate, the city is saying that water is no longer safe to drink, and that people can’t take water from the tap, according to Karen Cagle, a Houston attorney who has been working to change it.
The city’s water department does not have enough money to make the change.
So, Cagle said, it’s not surprising that water conservation is not being a priority for many people in Houston.
She wants to see the EPA consider whether it could also include a certificate for the use of water for other purposes.
If so, Cagenes office said it would consider adding it to the water conservation certification.
“There’s a lot of people who use water for drinking and other purposes,” Cagle told ABC News.
“And we want them to be included in the certification.”
The issue isn’t new for Houston, which is struggling with a stagnant and over-used supply of drinking water.
In fact, in the past 10 years, the amount of water being used to meet demand has grown from 2.2 billion gallons to 6.6 billion gallons a year, according the city.
“The problem is that we’re using up water like we haven’t been using water in decades,” said David Grosnick, a professor of political science at Houston Baptist University.
“It’s not just the water in the system, it is the water that comes out of the pipes.”
Water is a scarce resource.
According to the U.S. Geological Survey, there are only about 15 billion gallons of water in America, and only about 4.7 billion of those are in the ground.
The water we use to irrigate our crops, for washing dishes and washing clothes is also a finite resource.
“We’re using water to meet the needs of the people who live in our communities,” said Grosnick.
“But there’s also a huge population of people that don’t have access to the resources that we do.”
The city is asking the state to consider changing the certification to a more efficient water conservation program, to make it easier for people to stop consuming water.
The U. S. Environmental Protection Administration does not allow water conservation certifications.
The certificate program is currently used to allow the use for public health and environmental protection purposes.
The state is considering changing that, but the process is still in the process of being developed, said Chris Wilson, a spokesman for the EPA.
Wilson said the agency has not made a decision yet on whether to change certification.
A few states, including Oklahoma, have water management systems that allow people to regulate water use.
And some states, such as California, have also started requiring that water use be monitored and monitored at a community level.
If the EPA determines that it is too expensive to change water conservation certs to a conservation program that is easier to use, the agency could revisit those certification requirements and decide whether to take them off the books altogether, Wilson said.
In addition to Houston, other cities in the state have begun asking for a change in water conservation rules.
In Kansas City, Missouri, a city with a population of about 5 million people, residents are demanding changes to the certificate system.
The mayor said he would like to see a water certificate that would allow people in the city to stop using water and stop polluters from releasing harmful substances into the water supply.
“I think it’s fair that the city should be able to choose whether or not to continue using water,” said Mayor Tom Henry.
The Kansas City Council, the elected governing body of the city, has voted to pass a resolution calling for a new water conservation code, according a report in the Kansas City Star.
It is a measure that is similar to what’s being proposed by other cities around the country.
And the resolution says the city could start collecting and keeping records of water usage and water conservation practices, including where people have used water and how much water they use.
The City Council will consider whether to pass the resolution, according, the Star report.
In Houston, some people are still trying to figure out how to pay their bills.
“My whole life I’ve been a single mother,” said Sandra Brown, a water activist who has raised money for water programs
