How to use canals in a sentence?

  1. Paul Betancourt:

    We are draining a finite supply of water, it was ugly last year, and it's going to get uglier this year California is increasing distribution from a separate state-operated system of reservoirs and canals with fewer mandatory obligations. The State Water Project announced last month that The State Water Project could provide local agencies and farmers 15 percent of the water they requested, up from 5 percent last year. Some communities and endangered wildlife that rely on federal water will receive some water but still suffer cuts. Urban areas, including the San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento area, will receive a quarter of typical water allotments but could receive more if public health is threatened. The water in the snowpack, California's primary water source, is at a fifth of its normal level, according to state officials. Federal officials said they don't expect a snow survey next week to show improved conditions. With enough precipitation, The State Water Project can provide more water later in the year. Paul Wegner, president of the California Farm Bureau Federation, said the federal government's announcement is another sign California needs to speed up construction of water storage projects and to reform laws requiring the government to prioritize water to preserve the environment and fish species.

  2. Angelique Hilaire:

    I can't afford to rent anywhere else, every time it rains I pray to God for it to stop. But what can I do ? Even a short downpour can leave the capital flooded as piles of rubbish on the streets and debris filled canals block drains, which exacerbates flooding. Natural disasters linked to climate change will only get more frequent and extreme in the future, experts say. Decades of deforestation have left Haiti even more exposed to natural disasters, with less than three percent of its original forest cover still intact, according to the UNDP. This causes soil erosion and reduces the ability of soil to retain water, making Haiti more vulnerable to flooding and landslides. During heavy rainfall, there are few trees to stop water washing down the bare mountains. While 5.5 million tree seedlings have been planted in Haiti by the UNDP since 2010, not enough has been done to stop people cutting down trees in the first place. Selling charcoal, which comes from burning wood, is used for cooking and is a key source of income for many Haitians living in the countryside. .

  3. Gianfranco Bettin:

    The excavations of canals, in particular the one dedicated to oil tankers, have opened highways to the sea, global warming has contributed by increasing the sea level and the strength of the winds that push the water towards the city.

  4. Firefighter Isamu Kase:

    It was a hellish frenzy, absolutely horrible. People were just jumping into the canals to escape the inferno.

  5. Alcaeus:

    Not houses finely roofed or the stones of walls well builded, nay nor canals and dockyards make the city, but men able to use their opportunity.
