    Why there is a need to conserve water?

    Suppose you live in a society with a proper maintainance. One Sunday morning, your family decides to enjoy the weekend at picnic spot and after a while you find that water supply is dealing with some problem.

    Henceforth, your secretary announces to go and get water from next society tanker. And your Sunday gets wasted. You felt, if you would have conserved water, you would have enjoyed your weekend today.

    So it needs to be known that:

    • Why the water is getting decreased?

    • Why the distribution of water is uneven?

    • Why there is a lack of rainfall?

    • Why there is a shortage of underground water?

    • Why the water usage is more?

    • Why water needs to be conserved?


    • Why the water is getting decreased?

    = The growing pollution leads to change in the climate which results droughts, floods, heatwaves etc. It pollutes the freshwater and underground water as well, which leads to decrease in water.

    • Why the distribution of water is uneven?

    = It is because of uneven distribution of rainfall. Due to different climatic condition, every state gets that much rainfall, hence the scarcity arises.

    • Why there is a lack of rainfall?

    = There is a lack of water vapour in the atmostphere which means there is a less precipitation. High pressure systems reduce evaporation and moisture in the atmostphere.

    • Why there is a shortage of underground water?

    = The change in climate which leads to calamities like droughts , floods decreases the underground water. The human consumption, wastage, and overuse has been done as well, are the reasons of shortage.

    • Why the uses of water is more?

    = The uses of water is more because every plant, animal and humans consume water for the purpose of drinking, bathing, cooking, agriculture procedure in the industries, companies and factories etc., That is why water is used more.

    • Why water needs to be con server?

    Though planet earth is a blue planet but we feel scarcity of water . In metro cities water is available for only one time only . The ground water level is also decreased . So rain water harvesting is a great step to conserve water for further use. Rain water is natural falling water it can be stored for further usage like plantation , mopping , washing vehicles and many more . In earlier times also , people use to store rain water in large container for further use as there is no availability of tap and pumps at every house. Water water every where but nothing to drink because water is polluted brutally in cities . Also air pollution will causes acid rain . So we need to minimize air pollution and water pollution as well. Through water harvesting we can also conserve water as rain water will wasted only. That’s why we need to conserve rain water.

    Hope you will be satisfied with my answer.

    Thank you!!

    The Earth is known as the blue planet, with a huge conserve of water. It is known that 70.8% of the Earth surface is consisted of water but even after that we face water crisis in our everyday life. This is because 97.5% of the available water is salt water which is not suitable for consumption. Salt water is to be treated and needs to be run through a lot of checks which is neither cost efficient nor fully safe for consumption. Among the 2.5% of fresh water available on the surface of the earth only 0.03% is available in the regular liquid form for use, the rest of the water is frozen in the glaciers and ice caps.

    In this hour of crisis with this less amount of usable water ever increasing water pollution its high time for conserving water, to make water resources sustainable and save water for the future generations. Also, the ever-growing population accounts for the urge to save water as without water it is impossible to sustain life on earth. Water is necessary for crops to grow which is our basic necessity.

    Some basic everyday measure which we should necessarily take to conserve water:

    1. Turn off taps when not in use.

    2. Use rain water harvesting techniques.

    3. Recycle water

    4. Use bucket instead of taking a sower
