use or waste. device. ‡ A reduction in water use accomplished by implementation of water conservation or water efficiency measures. or improved design or process implemented to reduce water loss. or.Water conservation Water conservation can be defined as: ‡ Any beneficial reduction in water loss. ‡ Improved water management practices that reduce or enhance the beneficial use of water. waste. Water efficiency is a tool of water conservation. ‡ A water conservation measure is an action. or use. . behavioural change. technology.

g. ‡ The value and cost-effectiveness of a water efficiency measure must be evaluated in relation to its effects on the use and cost of other natural resources (e. ‡ Water pumping. energy or chemicals) ‡To ensure availability for future generations. California) over 15% of total electricity consumption is devoted to water management. and wastewater treatment facilities consume a significant amount of energy. In some regions of the world (for example. ‡ Minimizing human water use helps to preserve fresh water habitats for local wildlife and migrating waterfowl. as well as reducing the need to build new dams and other water diversion infrastructure . the withdrawal of fresh water from an ecosystem should not exceed its natural replacement rate . .WHY DO WE NEED WATER MANAGEMENT? ‡ We need to save water as it results in more efficient water use and thus reduces water demand. delivery.

instead of letting a hose run. An additional benefit is that they reduce splashing while washing hands and dishes. Low-flush toilets and composting toilets.How to save water ? 1)HOUSE HOLD APPLICATIONS :‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ Low-flow shower heads sometimes called energy-efficient shower heads as they also use less energy. These have a dramatic impact in the developed world. Rainwater harvesting High-efficiency cloth washing Weather-based irrigation controllers Garden hose nozzles that shut off water when it is not being used. Faucet aerators. as conventional Western toilets use large volumes of water. Wastewater reuse or recycling systems. Dual flush toilets use up to 67% less water than conventional toilets. which break water flow into fine droplets to maintain "wetting effectiveness" while using less water. allowing: ² Reuse of gray water for flushing toilets or watering gardens. due to less water being heated. See also wastewater reuse. Automatic faucet is a water conservation faucet that eliminates water waste at the faucet. Saline water (sea water) or rain water can be used for flushing toilets. It automates the use of faucets without the using of hands. Dual-flush toilets created by caroma includes two buttons or handles to flush different levels of water. and ² Recycling of wastewater through purification at a water treatment plant. ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ .

‡ Infrared or foot-operated faucets. which can be used instead of a hose to clean sidewalks. ‡ Pressurized water brooms. ‡ Waterless car washes.2)COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS ‡ Waterless urinals. ‡ Cooling tower conductivity controllers. which can save water by using short bursts of water for rinsing in a kitchen or bathroom. . ‡ X-ray film processor re-circulation systems. ‡ Water-saving steam sterilizers. for use in hospitals and health care facilities.

but offers the best results in delivering water to plant roots with minimal losses. optimal water efficiency means minimizing losses due to evaporation. .3)Agricultural applications ‡ For crop irrigation. using centre-pivot or lateral-moving sprinklers. ‡ Drip irrigation is the most expensive and least-used type. as parts of a field may receive excess water in order to deliver sufficient quantities to other parts. is often very uneven in distribution. the oldest and most common type. ‡ Flood irrigation . runoff or subsurface drainage. ‡ Overhead irrigation . ‡ An evaporation pan can be used to determine how much water is required to irrigate the land. gives a much more equal and controlled distribution pattern.

We need to conserve water because ³it is the driver of the nature.let me show you our dark future where. there is no water««« .´ If you do not believe .


.. Towels and oil would be used to clean the body««. .There will be not enough water to drink ² would lead to severe kidney problems««.

All the rivers. lakes. dams and underground water beds are either dry or contaminated««««««««« .

.. And people will have no good work to do«.Industries would come virtually to a standstill and unemployment reached dramatic proportions«««.

The outside appearance of the people would be horrible: wrinkled.. And skin cancer will be the main cause of death. . emaciated bodies due to dehydration«.

would be expelled from the ´ventilated zonesµ with huge mechanical lungs driven by solar power««««.People would have to pay for the air they breathe«««. . And those who could not pay.

because they belonged to the generation which contributed to the destruction of the environment«««« And the price would be paid by the youth .And then the aged people would not stop feeling guilty.

perhaps the duty of each one of us to contribute towards water management. Intelligent utilisation of water resources is the need of the hour. save water . . save life !!!!! As water crisis is one of the major issues that the world is facing and it is the responsibility.So.
