Conservation of Water
Water is a natural resource. It is very precious. Earth’s natural resources are depleting at an alarming rate due to increase in human population, rapid industrialisation and urbanisation. Trees are being cut indiscriminately and the result is groundwater levels are falling and the day is not far when wars will be fought for water. It is needless to say that water is the most essential resource for life. If we need water in the future we should conserve it urgently. We can save water through many ways. First of all the taps should be used properly and kept turned off always. Water should not be wasted while bathing or washing floors. Reuse water wherever possible. Fix alarm to water tanks so that overflow can be prevented. We must keep in mind that water should be conserved, not wasted. Conservation helps prevent water pollution in nearby lakes, rivers and local watersheds. Conserving water is something that we all should do.
