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

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

Low-flush toilets and composting toilets. instead of letting a hose run. due to less water being heated. which break water flow into fine droplets to maintain "wetting effectiveness" while using less water. Wastewater reuse or recycling systems. See also wastewater reuse. as conventional Western toilets use large volumes of water. Saline water (sea water) or rain water can be used for flushing toilets. An additional benefit is that they reduce splashing while washing hands and dishes. allowing: ² Reuse of gray water for flushing toilets or watering gardens. Faucet aerators.How to save water ? 1)HOUSE HOLD APPLICATIONS :‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ Low-flow shower heads sometimes called energy-efficient shower heads as they also use less energy. Dual flush toilets use up to 67% less water than conventional toilets. and ² Recycling of wastewater through purification at a water treatment plant. 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. Dual-flush toilets created by caroma includes two buttons or handles to flush different levels of water. ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ . Automatic faucet is a water conservation faucet that eliminates water waste at the faucet. It automates the use of faucets without the using of hands.

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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.

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