Te'Azsa Dash It's Up To You There will be less clean drinking water and less aquatic animals as a result.
More people accumulate more waste, which can runoff into lakes and other places where our water comes from.
Now, about 2 billion people (1/3 of Earths population) depend on groundwater supplies and if more pesticides enter the water then it is contaminated.
When the population increases it is harder to get sanitation for all. The lack of sanitation of the water means more diseases can conjure up into the water supply system. 5+ million people die from a water related disease a year. People can attract diseases like: Trachoma, Schistosomiasis. 4 Ways that a Growing Population
Impacts Global Water Supplies: Taking shorter showers can reduce water consumption in a household and other places. In the shower you should use a MAXIMUM of 2.5 gallons per minute.
When you are brushing your teeth or putting toothpaste on the brush, you don’t need the water running while you are brushing only when rinsing.
When you buy fewer water bottles you are cutting back on pollution and money. But, also you are cutting back on electricity because there is a process that has to be done to make water bottles and it uses water. 3 ways people can reduce their
water consumption: •Charity: Water is a non-profit organization that brings clean and safe water to developing nations. The organization was started in 2006 by Scott Harrison. He decided in 2004 he wanted to make a change, for two years he joined Mercy Ships and went to Liberia. This organization has benefited over 2,545,000 people and funded at least 6,611 projects in 20 countries. As of January 15th, 2012 Charity:Water raised $40+ million. 1 Organization: Use natural composted fertilizer, such as manure from cows, sheep, pigs, and horses. You can also farm with composted mulch.
Build more sewers. They take the waste from the buildings out and de-contaminant it. 2 ways that water pollution from agricultural
& industrial waste can be reduced: http://enviroscope.iges.or.jp/contents/eLearning/waterdemo/factsforall.htm
