Water is very important for the survival of life on the planet. It makes life possible on earth and life without water is unimaginable. Water is the main resource without which no life can survive. Though 75% of the earth’s surface is covered with water, only 2% of it is fresh water that we use.
This makes freshwater more valuable and should not be wasted. Water is as essential as air for life on the planet. The misuse of water at several places has made the water-scarce and rare. Unavailability of water could mean life and death situation for humans and other living species. Regions around the world are facing water shortage due to low rainfall and groundwater depletion. In some places, the groundwater is either contaminated or is wasted. Such waste of natural water leads to drought situations. Population growth also has a major role to play in water depletion.
More population means more demand and hence more wastages. Moreover, as per the reports of the World Health Organization, around 844 million people don’t have access to clean drinking water. This fact is alarming enough and makes it very important to save water for ourselves and for our future generations.
