In the the dry season, many NATURAL waters end up as standing waters until rains return.

We cannot “”get rid of all sources of natural standing water” around our homes without destroying the circle of life for mammals and birds that are depending on that water, regardless of how aerated it is, being there in the dry season.

In effect, it is our homes being in the vicinity of pools of natural water that become stagnant at times of the year which are the unsustainable practice. But both the natural pools and the unnatural homes are there, resulting in a no-win situation that is unsustainable, and should be acknowledged as such.
