  1. Respect “Water” to Conserve Every “Drop of Life”(Water - Facts & Benefits)

  2. Content • About water • Where we can get water • Why do we need water • How much water do we need • Why should be save water • A to Z tips to save water • Most common reasons for increased demand • Benefits of water conservation

  3. Water “DRIVING FORCE OF ALL NATURE” …. Leonardo Da Vinci • Most common liquid on earth • Water is made of tiny molecule of Hydrogen & Oxygen • Pure water is colorless, odorless & tasteless • Water exists in three forms on the Earth: Solid (ice, hail, snow or frost) Liquid (in lakes, oceans, rain, dew, fog or mist) Gas (steam or water vapor – “invisible” water in the air)

  4. Where We Can Get Water? • About 90% of the water on the earth’s surface is in the world’s oceans • This is where you can find most of the water • Lakes • Rivers • Polar ice caps • Clouds • Rain • Stored in rocks (aquifers) • Sea ice

  5. Why Do We Need Water? • To carry nutrients and remove waste in the body • To lubricate joints, body tissues, and digestive tract • To cool the body, especially during physical activity • To be used in factories, agriculture, hospitals, hotels, etc.

  6. How Much Water Do We Need? • Most people need around 6-8 glasses of water each day • Inadequate fluid intake can lead to dehydration and constipation • More water may be needed during times of fever, or illness • Athletes should drink additional amounts before, during and after exercise

  8. Why Should We Save Water? • Of all the water in the world, only 3% is fresh • Less than one third of 1% of this fresh water is available for human use. • The rest is frozen in glaciers or polar ice caps, or is deep within the earth, beyond our reach • To put it another way, if 100 liters represents the world's water, about half a tablespoon of it is fresh water available for our use • It is a resource which is a boon for everyone

  9. A to Z Tips to Save Water A dripping tap could waste as much as 90 liters a week. Brushing your teeth with the tap running wastes almost 9 liters a minute. Rinse out from a tumbler instead. Cool water kept in the fridge means you won't have to run the tap for ages to get a cold drink. Don't use your washing machine until you've got a full load. A full load uses less water than 2 half loads. Every time you boil an egg save the cooled water for your houseplants. They'll benefit from the nutrients released from the shell. Fit a water saving device in your cistern and save up to three liters a flush. Reference :

  10. Continued… Grow your grass a little longer. It will stay greener than a close mown lawn and need less watering. Hoeing stimulates the growth of plants, reduces water loss from the soil surface and removes weeds that take up valuable water and nutrients. Installing a water meter can save you water and money by monitoring how much you use. Just taking a five minute shower very day, instead of a bath, will use a third of the water, saving up to 400 liters a week. Kettles should be filled with enough water for your needs but not to the brim. This will reduce your fuel bills too. Lag your pipes to avoid bursts and leave your heating on a low setting while you are out in cold weather to prevent pipes freezing. Reference :

  11. Continued… Mulch for moisture in the garden. Adding a layer of tree bark, compost, coconut husks or even newspaper keeps the sun off the soil and retains precious moisture. No further watering is usually required for established trees and shrubs. Once a week is all the watering your lawn needs even in the hottest weather. Purchasing a water butt will help you to collect rain water for use on the garden. Question your local garden center about the water requirements of different plants. Some thrive in drier conditions. Replacing a toilet cistern can save water. Sprinklers can be wasteful. A sprinkler can use as much water in an hour as a family of four will use in a day! Reference :

  12. Continued… Trigger nozzles can save water by using it only when needed. Use the dirty water when cleaning a fish tank on your houseplants. It's rich in nitrogen and phosphorus, which provides an excellent fertilizer. Very 'water efficient' washing machines and dishwashers are now manufactured. You'll find that they save on energy too. Water your garden at the coolest part of the day to reduce evaporation. Xeriscape means to use plants that require less water. You can use less water by turning the hot tap down, rather than the cold tap up, if you require cooler water. Z The end of the alphabet but not the end of water saving ideas - why don’t you tell us of any you've discovered? Reference :

  13. Most Common Reasons for Increased Demand • Increase in world's population as more people live in cities and big towns • Increased farm lands demand more water supply • New adaptive habits which uses more water in day to day life • Increase in farming because farmers start growing more crops

  14. Benefits of Water Conservation • It saves money • It protects drinking water resources • Minimizes health risks and water pollution • Reduces the need for costly water supply and new wastewater treatment facilities • Maintains the health of aquatic environments • Saves energy used to pump, heat, and treat water • It helps in improving the quality of drinking water
