Water resource is important and value of to human in one form or the other. However, the advancement of modern civilization has had a great impact on our planet's natural resources. Water resources only get lost through evaporation or loss to sea, if we use water in cities it just gets cleaned and returned to the river before being re-abstracted. Seriously, the amount of water we use domestically is insignificant; the amount we drink doesn't even register. Water saving schemes are largely initiated by water companies to show that they are serious about saving water but the reality is that leakage rates from supply pipes dwarf the water used to brush your teeth. Four times more water is used for food production than for industrial and domestic use combined. So, conserving natural resources is very essential today. There are many ways that one can conserve natural resources. All you need to do is to find out ways to limit your usage. So

1) turn off the tap when you brush your teeth and scrub your hands
2) cut down on how long you take a shower

3) wash dishes by hand and fill up the sink with water instead of letting the water run
4) water your garden at night to reduce evaporation

5) get a meter installed, they help you keep track of what you use

6) return your waste water to the environment as 'clean' as possible. ie, use less detergents and soaps.

 

Let’s just hope it's not too late to save the water resource. There are a lot of things you can do to help save water, all you have to do is thinking of all the ways you are wasting water. Water treatment is the process that makes water suitable for specific end-use purpose. It may be drinking, irrigation etc. It refers to the treatment of water from lake, rivers or other fresh water sources. Such water are usually not too contaminated with dissolved substances so typical water treatment processes simply involves physical treatment like filtering and addition of chemicals e.g. chlorine and fluorine to give the water certain characteristics.
