Save Water Supply And Start It Now

Sustainable water supply is what we need. Water is very useful. Without it, life won’t be possible. We use it everyday at home, school, commercial establishments, offices, etc. Without it, how can we get a refreshing bath before you go to work? How will you wash the dishes, do the laundry or clean the car? Where will you get clean fluid when you brush your teeth and wash your hands?  But, do inform the other members of the family.  Water is essential in dieting and taking supplements like hcg, to help distribute the drug into the blood stream. How will you water plants everyday since they need it in making food during photosynthesis? Life is definitely hard without water. But, why is that abuses is rampant? We tend to pollute water sources and even hamper water table? We destroy rivers. We are wasting the supply. It is just to save and use it wisely. This is why supply is very much important and the manner of saving it. But, how will you utilize it the right way? Isn’t it hard? Start it now after you find the answers.

047 Water Supply

Different organizations and ordinary individuals promote water conservation. This is to maintain a good supply. You might be wasting a portion of it everyday. Are you aware of that? Or, you are very confident that you use the supply wisely? One can save without sweating and any hardships. You only need to be familiar with the strategies. They are given below.

Check water lines and other related connections regularly. This will help you determine the leaks. Schedule the check-up once every month or more often. You can do the checking anytime of the day. be sure you check all connections. If the faucets and containers need to be fixed, fix it yourself. You can also replace damaged hose to avoid major problems. In case you can’t handle problems yourself, call the right person.

Instead of baths, take refreshing showers. The usual bath can consume almost 25 gallons of water. But, if you use the shower hose, you can only use 10 gallons. See? There is a big difference on how much water can be used. Now, when you wash the dishes, use water wisely. Limit your consumption by not leaving the faucet on. You can just stuck used dishes and after eating, wash them all together. Conservation requires you to limit water consumption.  You alone can’t save right. Encourage family members to do the same especially the kids. They love to play when taking baths. Warn them not to be too much in using the supply. Or else, they can’t use it again.

Used water can be kept for good. you can use it when cleaning the garage, washing your wheels and flushing the toilet. Count how many gallons you can save in a day. So, instead of letting them be wasted, use them.

Despite the call for conservation, there are still issues relating to water consumption. Is this because of ignorant users and continue wastage? Awareness should be widely spread. If the others don’t know, then they should be told earlier. Proper consumption must start at home. If you use it only when needed then good but warn those who failed to do right. Hopefully, water issues will be solved soon. In Mexico, people are still longing to have enough supply. If you don’t experience the same problem as they, be thankful.

Good water supply is needed not only now but also in the future. It is a must element that we need everyday. But, if we are only wasting it, what do we expect to happen? For sure, there will be shortage which will lead to other major problems like unhygienic lifestyles, diseases and malnutrition. So, start saving it now before it’s too late. Inform others. Convince them.

Water As The Most Vital Need In Our Life

Water is very important in our daily lives. It is one of the basic necessities that we cannot live without. It is very crucial in helping us survive in this world. If we would take a look at our surrounding, almost everything needs water. We are made up of 50-80% water.  The Earth is made up of about 70 percent water. Water is used in various ways such as for transportation, for cooking, for watering the plants and for cleaning. That is why drinking clean and safe water is such an important issue for everyone.

097 Glacier water vs Spring water

Some unfortunate people do not have the means of drinking clean waters. They just drink available water from the nearest water source for them. Billions of people around the globe lack access to safe drinking water. This makes them more prone to diseases and unhealthy sanitations. This situation also reflects why many people are suffering from being thirsty with maladies. Others drink dirty waters since they have no choice.

If you are fortunate enough to be one of the individuals who have easy access to clean waters and has the money to buy processed water, then you must be very lucky. Many businesses have made billions of sales from selling waters in bottle, in machines and in all forms. There are different types of processed waters being sold to the public. Examples are pure drinking water, distilled water and spring water.

There have been a lot of issues with regards to glacier water versus the spring water. Spring bottled water comes from an underground source which may be purified or not. This kind of water is not really advisable for drinking or for consumption since it may not have been treated or purified properly. Though the name itself suggests that it must come from really mountainous places with healthy source of water, it is just actually found in available sources and just tap water. It may even contain contaminants like coliform, arsenic and phthalates. Spring water also can be found from subterranean water resources. Glacier water on the other hand comes from glacial streams from melting glaciers.

Other forms of water are natural mineral water and prepared water. But the bottom line of this is that whatever type of water you are drinking, just make sure that it is from a safe water source and that it may not cause damage to your health system. Always be careful of what you are drinking.

An Advocacy For Building Water Sources For Third World Countries

053 Building water sources for third world countriesWater is one of the most important things in life together with food and air. We are living on earth because we have water. Water is important to plants, animals and to us, humans. Human life needs water not only for drinking but also for various reasons like sanitation, cooking, livelihood and a lot more. It is fact that three-fourths of our body and of the earth is made up of water. We will not live longer than three days if we do not take in water into our bodies. That is how essential water is to our lives. Therefore, building water sources for third world countries is something we should support and promote.

Water sources in third world countries are not sufficient for the needs of the people living there. Most of the water supply is unsafe and unsanitary. A large percent of the sewage system in developing countries are untreated and polluted. Diarrhea is one of the leading causes of death in third world countries especially of children for they have weaker immune systems. People fetch water from wells, rivers, lakes, ponds and sometimes even use rainwater. They have to walk kilometers just to get water from the nearest source.

We need water in almost every aspect of our lives. We need it for cooking our food, cleaning our belongings and our bodies, for irrigation, electricity, leisure purposes and especially for keeping our bodies hydrated and our body systems functioning well. We badly need safe and clean water for our daily intake. A lot of benefits can be obtained from drinking six to eight glasses of water every day. We have lesser chances of having a heart attack if we drink enough water. Unsafe water can reduce our mental alertness, and intelligence. We can also easily digest the food that we eat and regulate our body temperature by drinking plenty of water. It has also been proven to increase the speed of our metabolism and help in the breakdown of fats in the body. All of these are the benefits of water to the human body and there are thousands more.

Because of these, we should make sure that everyone has access to a clean and healthy water supply. We should also keep in mind that we need to conserve and take care of our sources of water so that we will not run out of it in the future. Proper usage of water whether we are at home, at school, in the office or outdoors must be observed. We need to conserve water for us humans, for the animals and plants and for the future generations to come. Building water sources for third world countries should be our advocacy.

Giving Solutions To Water Crisis In Africa

114 Water in AfricaIf there is one place in the world that is suffering from water crisis it is Africa. Africa is one of the largest deserts in the world. The only time that water in Africa is abundant is when it rains. But the sad part is that it takes months and even years before it rains. That’s why animals and people in Africa have created a technique on how to get water. They would normally dig on the ground until they reach the water level. Elephants are very good at this. Elephants can actually detect the location of water through their senses. But people in Africa have already adjusted living with water shortage. That’s why water is very important in Africa. Experts are also looking for solution for this problem.

Water is an essential part of our life and it’s also essential for survival. Without water, no one can survive. People in Africa are also storing water as long as they have the supply because when it runs out, they would have sufficient supply until the nest rain falls again. If you think that it’s easy to live in Africa, I challenge you to live there and you will see and realize how people give important to water. Many of the people there are suffering from diarrhea, dehydration, malnutrition, and other health problems. Could you imagine yourself drinking water that came from underground and the color of the water is brownish? How much bacteria does that water contains? That’s why people in Africa are really thirsty to taste clean water. Water is an essential part of our body. Majority of our body is water. Lucky for those parts of Africa where they have water wells. They don’t need to dig the ground just to find water.

It’s sad to see these people suffering from lack of water supply. They don’t even take a bath because of lack of supply of water. But because of these problem, there are also some concern citizens and organization who come with a project like making deep well so that there will be sufficient supply of water to provide the people in the whole year. So whether it rains in the year or not, they will have sufficient supply of water. But in some part of Africa, who doesn’t have deep wells, are still looking for places where they can get water. Sometimes they tend to share with wild animals. Sometimes, they even drink the water where there is an animal soaking in the water. That is not very healthy.

Bad Effects Of Water To Our Body

115 Water effecting healthWe commonly hear from most health experts that drinking water is good therapy. They say that they treat some health conditions and it also gives good effects to our skin and to our body system. You might have heard one of the very common advises from health experts and even they show it some TV commercials that we need to drink 8 glasses of water each day. There are some misconceptions when it comes to water that we know that needs to be corrected because sometimes it doesn’t apply to everyone. All we know that water is one of our necessities for survival and nobody can survive without water. But most of us are not aware of the negative effects of water to our body. I’m sure that right now you might be a little surprise with what I just said. Yes, there are bad effects that water can do to our body. There are some factors that I can prove that water effecting health.

 

When It’s Contaminated/Polluted

Obviously, when water is contaminated or polluted, it’s not safe to drink. But how would you know if the water is contaminated or not safe to drink? Drinking water can become polluted at the main source, during treatment, or during distribution to the home. Or, if the water came from surface water like river or lake because it can be exposed to acid rain, storm water runoff, pesticide runoff, and industrial waste. Or, it can also be contaminated if water comes from ground level such as private wells and some public water supplies. Most groundwater can be contaminated by disease=producing pathogens, leachate from landfills and septic system, careless disposal of household products, agricultural chemicals, and leaking underground storage tanks. In addition, your water supply can be contaminated if your water pipe is already old and rusty. Rust can have bad effects to our body because it’s toxins.

 

Over Drinking

Another factors how water effecting health that is commonly misunderstood is drinking too much water. Our body only requires certain amount of water and if you took over the required amount it could cause problems to the system of the body particularly your heart and your kidney. Drinking 8 glasses of water can true to some but may not be applicable to others. It’s only you who can tell whether you have enough or not. Did you know that there are cases that people died because of drinking too much water?

At this moment, you already have an idea how water is affecting our health, so be extra careful where you get your drinking water and have it checked if they are safe for drinking.

How To Have Clean Water Source

089 Clean water sourceWater is one of the most essential factors that every living thing needs in order to survive. Without water, there is no way that we will be able to survive this life. But the sad part is, if water can give us life, water can also be a cause of our sickness. Because of the lifestyle that humans have today, most of the water sources are contaminated. That’s why it’s very important that we secure if we have a clean water source in our area. Most water company has this big machine that ensures the safety and cleanliness of the water being supplied in the community. But the responsibility to have clean water doesn’t stop there. Home owners also have the responsibility to keep their water supply clean by doing the following factors.

 

Check For Leaks

Since most water pipes are made of high quality plastic and metal, in due time rust and cracks can damage the pipes and that could cause the water to be polluted. That’s why you need to always check for leaks especially if you smell something unusual with your water. It’s either rusty smell, or other disturbing smell that might indicate that the water is contaminated. You can check in your own water line and if possible also check the main line, or you can report that to your water supplier so they can do the checking.

 

Change Old Pipes

If ever you found that your water pipe is too rusty and old, it time to change it with new ones. Could you imagine drinking water that is contaminated with rust? That is disgusting and could bring toxins to your body that could cause sickness to develop like diarrhea, stomach pain, and other disease related to that. So, change the water pipes as soon as possible. But first, you need to measure the damaged pipe so that you will know the size of water pipe that you need to replace. In case you have a metal pipe, I would suggest that you replace it with plastic pipe so you won’t have any problem with rust issue.

 

Buy Water Filter

Another factor to make sure that you have a clean water source is you can use water filter. This device is invented to filter the water to be sure that you are drinking 100% clean water.

Now you see that it’s not that hard to ensure that you have a clean water source. So, now you can enjoy a clean and healthy water.

How To Conserve Our Water Supply

160 Water SupplyWater plays a vital role in our lives because we use it almost everyday. We use it when we take a bath, wash dishes, wash clothes, and most importantly, use it to rehydrate our bodies. But sometimes, we people take it for granted because of its abundant supply, yet little do we know that the supply for clean water is becoming scarce. Yes, water is everywhere but clean water is not. We need to give emphasis on conserving our water supply because without water, we would not even exist at all. So how do we do it? Well, here are some simple ways that you could do everyday to help conserve water.

First, always remember to turn of faucets when not in use. For example, when we wash our hands, wash dishes, wash clothes, try not to keep the water running if you are not using it. Also, do not leave faucets or pipes to leak. If there are some damages on your water pipes, try to fix them as soon as possible because simple leaks can accumulate and waste a lot of water. Second, try to reuse water as much as possible. With the use of a pail, you can try to catch the excess water when you take a bath and use it to flush the toilet. It is a simple thing to do but it can save a lot of water. Try to imagine the amount of clean flushing water you use every time you use the toilet. Third, when you wash clothes, try to wash them in bulk. Try to imagine the amount of water that you use when you do your laundry piece by piece. Fourth, whenever you take a bath, do not spend too much time in the shower. Yes, we need to clean our bodies thoroughly but we can do that even if we do not use too much water. Lastly, we must always put in our minds that water is a scarce resource. If we have this kind of mindset, then everything will just follow.

Indeed, water is a very valuable resource and we must take care of it. So whenever you have the opportunity to conserve it, do it. For example, if you see a leaking faucet, take time to turn it off. If you think you are taking a shower for too long, stop. These are just small things but if everyone does it then we get to save a lot of water.

Saving The Remaining Water Resources

We need sustainable water resources. Some of the world’s nations are having issues when it comes to water supply. They can’t get enough supply for daily needs. The government even needs to get supply from other countries or secure purifiers and other equipment. Water resources are getting fewer. Is this due to the abuses of humans? Is this because we are destroying resources instead of preserving them? This is an essential element necessary for life. It’s useful. Without it, life would never be possible. It’s not just use for cooking or washing clothes. It is mainly use for drinking. We use everyday whether at home, school, canteen, offices, commercial establishments, etc. Not only humans need water but even plants and animals. All living things require it to live. But, why can’t we stop or prevent polluting the reservoirs? Why do we keep on wasting? Look at our rivers and seas. They are loaded with wastes. They are not anymore safe for fish and other sea-living creatures. We are wasting ones abundant supply. When do we plan to stop these abuses? This time, let’s try to save the remaining sources. It’s not hard if there is willingness.

058 Water Resources

Water conservation is a hit today. It targets the whole world not just countries experiencing shortages like Mexico. Different organizations are already making connections with the global leaders. Their target is really to preserve the remaining percentage and even discover more routes for clean water. They are losing hope. They know that there are still undiscovered water resources. Conservation is more on proper usage. If you are wasting a part of it everyday, stop that. Leaking connections and limiting consumption can help address the problem. Start your green advocacy  at home.

The need to retain water resources requires policies and activities that would help protect and manage fresh water resources. We don’t know how big the future human demand is. Factors like household size, climate change, population, and affluences affect the amount of water being used everyday. If nobody is aware that resources will only last when proper use and conservation is applied, what do we expect?

In preserving the available water resources, we hit 3 main goals – sustainability, energy conservation and habitat preservation. Sustainability will assure future generations that they still have adequate supply for everyday consumption. This is why minimizing human water use is being encouraged not only to secure future generations but also to secure wildlife habitats that are becoming extinct.

The Many Sources Of Water

038 Water ResourcesWater is a very scarce commodity today because of the many issues regarding our environment. It’s because our planet is currently experiencing global warming, waste management issues, and nature issues. There are also the issues on the waste being thrown into the lake or any body of water. If these are not acknowledged and addressed properly, then we will definitely have a problem with where we would get our necessities such as food and water. These are the basic needs of man anywhere in the world.

For example, certain places in Asia are suffering from the lack of water. Not only is purified and distilled water industries increasing but, in some places, drinking their water causes diseases like amoebiasis or loose bowel movement. This is because the water carries viruses and then it was not cleaned before drinking it. The most popular form of purifying water is by boiling it then one may drink it hot or allow it to cool down. If you are unsure of the resource, then do boil it before drinking to kill some impurities.

Also, it helps to support environmental groups who want to address nature issues because water is part of their concern. They understand that being human beings who live on Earth; we should take care of the place that we live in. Let us keep it clean and cultivate our surroundings to give us clean necessities. It’s not an easy task because of course, most of us are focused on something else like our job. We take for granted our mother earth and create more waste without any method of addressing these.

Companies are also encouraged to take part in doing all these activities because usually, they are concerned. Since they occupy a very big population in terms of generating wastes, then they should have proper methods to address it. It’s also because it could include chemicals and other hazardous wastes. Since they use this to manufacture products and support their operations, then they should take responsibility for it. They are now trying to take corporate social responsibility to be able to make sure that they can contribute.

As people though, the best thing that we can do is to take part in segregation of wastes for easier disposal. That is usually the method that most countries are doing because with that, it’ll be easier to know where to put the biodegradable and non-biodegradable. It’s also a great way to make money out of junk. There are some junk yards who buy used bottles, newspapers, and even plastic for recycling. Rates of course vary depending on the weight, and it is a great incentive to promote waste management.

There are many ways for many groups and people to contribute. Though the important thing is to do something about it and be able to make sure that we commit to it. It is easier said than done because we weren’t having these problems before. Now, we are having problems with our water and we even worry about where it comes from. We can’t exactly get water from the sea because this could cause hallucinations other than the fact that it is salty.

We can however drink water from the rain as long as it hasn’t dropped on anything dirty. It is a great way to refresh and quench a thirst. Someone even once told me that soldiers go through water therapy before they go on field. They said that they do that so that when they lack water, they can drink their own urine since they will also be clean. Though, they can only do this for a short number of times.

Keeping Water Resources Clean And Safe

Amongst the most important things in life are water resources. You need to bear in mind that without clean source of water there is just no way you can live longer. Water is even considered to be the most basic need of any living thing. Now, the greatest resource that is available to man is the Earth’s many resources of water. You can just look around you and notice the lakes and streams to oceans and rivers. As a matter of fact, the Earth is made up of about 70 percent water. Nevertheless, because 90 percent of that water is salt based, this simply means it is not consumable. This is as well the very reason why it is so important that you keep all resources of water clean for years to come because without it you might just run out of water and run out of life.

011 Water Resources

The first thing that you need to do in order to keep these resources is to properly dispose water and lard. As simple as this may be, there are still a lot of people who disregard this fact. It is very important that you do understand that you have to discard waste and cooking oils in a trash receptacle. You never have to spend much to do this, all you need to do is to find a trash can where you can use for the cooking oils that you have used. You should also allow it to harden, and never pour it down the sink because this might contaminate the resources of water. The next thing you need to do is to actually recycle all plastics and bottles.

Since, it will be next to impossible that you eliminate the use of plastics and bottle, you might as well as find ways in which you can make use of it. The best thing that you can do is to maintain a recycle bin in the home. You also need to be sure that you properly sort materials by type. For instance, you can have a bin for paper, plastics and glass. You might as well as have some trash bin for the tampons so you never have to flush them down the toilet. These ways are just too simple that you can’t just find any means of excusing yourself not to do this. Be sure that you also limit water runoff when watering your lawns. Chemicals and pesticides from your lawn can drain into the sewage system and pollute the water resources as well so you have to find way in which you can dispose it in different ways.

In addition, you also need to use natural fertilizers when possible so you can just keep a healthy environment. If you are fond of using wrappers then you need to take wrappers and other materials with you when you leave the beach. Never leave it anywhere else because these things might just be among the things that can pollute water. You also need to remember that these items can very easily end up in the ocean. If you do have some time left you can even look around you and pick those wrappers that are scatterings and you can indeed make a simple yet meaningful act of saving the resources of water.

Lastly, you can also be involved in clean up activity so you can indeed keep the water resources clean. You also need to be to sure that you never litter no matter what. If there is no available trash bin then you can either keep it in your pocket or you can just hold it until there is an available trash bin. Not only is this action inconsiderate, but it is also unlawful in most areas.

The Real Situation Of Water In Africa

While, for most people clean water seems to be too easy to obtain; water in Africa however seems to be such a struggle. As a matter of fact, there are nearly a billion people in Africa who suffers from drought. Given the uneven distribution and even the high seasonality of rainfall in most part of this country, surely the availability of a reliable water source has also been a problem. Because of this, the government and even ordinary citizens make it a point to make the water source among the absolute priority. There is even a legislative overhaul which is to address the severe inequities of the past and produce state-of-the-art water resources management. In this way they can somehow find a remedy to their problems about water. They never even have to rely so much on the government.

In addition, these water services in Africa have also been addressed and the new policies which are being practice all over the land. If people from other parts of the world seem to care less about water because they know they have enough of it, people from Africa seems to give so much important to this. In fact, there are sectors that have demonstrated considerable achievement over the last decade. While, it is true that there are still so many works that need to be done, by these little things they are indeed building a better solution to this problem. With the overwhelming positive response both from the government and the people, certainly there is enough remedy to this issue. It may have been small remedies but when they are done together they surely make such a big difference.

Furthermore, the national budget allocations have been consistently increased over the years and because of this people do all that they can to spare some money for other things that they need. The even understand that the future growth and development of their country will depend not so much on the rapid roll out of infrastructure itself but on the sustainable delivery of the services which that infrastructure makes it very possible. This is the very fact that they are try to hold on during those times that they are having such hard time. The economic difficulty being encountered the rest of the land is something that they can just get through for as long as they strive to rise above it like weight loss punch.

Africa may never be as a rich country and that they are facing issue about water in Africa but the people are indeed doing all that they can so they can just rise above these issues within their land. Moreover, the in order for the people to receive sufficient quantities for dignified living, poor households spend up to one fourth of their available income on water. This is something that they also wanted to do because they know that it is for the betterment of everybody. Africa has many great natural sources like garcinia cambogia fruit extract and african mango extracts.They have even come to a certain point where they were about 15 million people without safe water supply and over 20 million without adequate sanitation services. This very situation has been proclaim around the world and has been much to the awareness of every one.

Lastly, as of today the country has made satisfactory progress with regards to improving access to water supply. Yet, much less progress has been achieved concerning access to sanitation and significant problems remain concerning the financial sustainability of the various investments and the lack of sufficient access to sanitation. This may still be among the greatest struggle but they are still finding the best ways in order to get through this.
