Water is the single most important resource on the planet that we live on, and that is why it is essential that we conserve it. Water is the basic necessity for all living beings, and it is incredibly important to conserve it. It is not only important for living and breathing things, but also for many inanimate objects that humans create. Water constitutes more than 70 percent of the Earth’s surface, and yet we do not have enough water for our needs. It is essential to conserve and save water for ourselves and the entire planet Earth.There is water in the oceans, rivers, seas, ponds, lakes.If the water on our planet ever runs out, it would be very bad for humans, plants as well as animals. All living beings are dependent on water – plants need water to grow, animals and humans need to drink water to survive, aquatic animals live in water, so they will die if there is none. Thus, if the water on the planet gets over, there will be no future for any of us.This is the reason why we need to save water. We can save water in many ways, including by taking shorter showers or using a bucket to have a bath instead of a shower, making sure to close the tap properly after using it.
It is important to save water because all living beings need water to survive, including animals, plants, and humans, and without water, there will be no future.few things you can do in your daily life to save water, such as:
Always finish the water in your glass
Don’t leave the tap running while washing your hands, brushing your teeth, etc.
Make sure that the tap is not dripping after you finish using it
Take shorter showers, or use buckets to have a bath instead
Turn off the taps:Don’t let your water consumption run out of control. Save 6 litres of water a minute by turning off your tap while you brush your teeth.
Catch rainwater:Installing water butts saves up to 5,000 litres of water a year . And your plants will thank you for rainwater rather than treated tap water.You can also cut water use by 33% by watering plants manually instead of using automatic sprinklers.
As our population rapidly increases; water scarcity only grows into a more serious problem for farming communities and people in cities. And with global warming and climate change, water scarcity further evolves into a bigger problem. Today, water security is very much at risk and it is fundamental to manage it in harmony with local ecosystems and communities
.Rainwater harvesting (RWH) is the collection and storage of rain, rather than allowing it to run off. Rainwater is collected from a roof-like surface and redirected to a tank, cistern, deep pit like well, aquifer, or a reservoir with percolation, so that it seeps down and restores the ground water. The importance of rainwater harvesting lies in the fact that it can be stored for future use. Just as it can be used directly so also the stored water can be utilized to revitalize the ground level water and improve its quality. This also helps to raise the level of ground water which then can be easily accessible.
