Why is water a valuable commodity?
Water is one of the most important elements for life to survive on this planet. As a result, the importance of water might be equated to the importance of air. All living species, whether animals or plants are completely reliant on water. Despite the fact that water is a necessity for all living things on Earth, having adequate water and drinking water that is safe to drink is a rare commodity around the world. Water makes up 70% of the planet, with 97.5 percent of it being located in the oceans and being salty, and only 2.5 percent being potable freshwater.
A person ne?eds approximately 50 litres of water every day for drinking, washing, cooking, and keeping proper hygiene!
About two or three buckets of water per person are required. We should consider ourselves fortunate if we receive this amount of water because many areas throughout the world are experiencing water scarcity now. Water is in poor supply in some areas, particularly during the warmer months.
For a variety of reasons, we are completely reliant on water. Agriculture makes use of water to irrigate crops. Water is used in our homes for drinking, cooking, cleaning, bathing, and other activities. Recreational activities take place on the water. Water is utilized in industries as a coolant, solvent, and in other production processes. Water is used to generate hydroelectric power. Navigation and cargo-transportation is also done on the water. This demonstrates how water is the most important component of life, and that every drop is necessary for survival. As a result, water conservation is critical to the survival of life on this planet.
Reason for a shortage of water
1: Excessive water usage is a result of population growth.
2: Excessive water waste occurs on a daily basis.
3: The problem of efficient garbage disposal has grown in tandem with the fast rise of industries. These companies' waste products contains extremely hazardous materials that pollute rivers and other bodies of water.
4: Pesticides and chemical fertilizers used to treat crops harm freshwater as well.
5: Waterborne diseases such as cholera, jaundice, and typhoid are caused by sewage waste thrown into rivers, making the water unfit for drinking and washing.
6: The use of plastics and their negligent disposal in water bodies has a negative impact on aquatic life, further disrupting the ecology.
Conserving Water/ Water Conservation
Human beings have a variety of options for reducing water waste. Turning off the tap while not in use, such as when brushing your teeth or washing your clothing or veggies, is one of them. Allowing your children to pollute the water is not a good idea. Don't toss water about unnecessarily. When bathing, use less water. Use rainwater for a variety of uses. Instead of washing the floors, mop them. Similarly, there are numerous methods for conserving water. We need to make everyone aware of the issues that develop as a result of the world's water scarcity.
India has considerable water potential for its population, but due to a lack of oversight and monitoring of water development projects, some sections in the country suffer from water shortages from time to time. In the coming decades, further negligence will result in water scarcity. As a result, it is critical to avert this crisis by maximizing the use of technology and raising awareness about the importance of conserving existing water resources, making efficient use of water for agriculture, industrial production, and human consumption, and conserving resources for future generations.
Without water, there is no life and no future!
