Human Environment-Interaction 1

There are many examples of human-environment interaction in Austin, Texas. One of the examples is all of the roads being built to lighten traffic in the area. Road construction is very common, and will help the flow of traffic so that cars will not continue to let out unnecessary exhaust into the atmosphere. Even though building more roads will slightly change the landscape of the city, it will end up helping reduce the amount of pollutants in our air.

Human-Environment Interaction 2

Another human-environment interaction is between the citizens of Austin and the lack of water in the lakes. Austin, along with many other cities in the state of Texas, is in a drought. This affects the residents of the city because they have to conserve as much water as possible. Water restrictions have been put into place, allowing the people of the area only one day a week to water their lawns.
