Transcript of Water Conservation

Water Conservation By Karthik HOwa? HOW? H W O Tell me when it doesn't Water I Know it is needed but I dont think Its a BIG issue.
WHere does it come into my life.... It comes everywhere Uses of water:- 1: Household It is estimated that 15% of worldwide water use is for household purposes. These include drinking water, bathing, cooking, sanitation, and gardening This 15% is what we daily use, this is how it gets consumed. 2. Agricultural uses It is estimated that 69% of worldwide water use is for irrigation, with 15-35% of irrigation withdrawals being unsustainable 3.Industrial Water Use It is estimated that 15% of worldwide water use is industrial. Major industrial users include power plants, which use water for cooling or as a power source (i.e. hydroelectric plants), ore and oil refineries, which use water in chemical processes, and manufacturing plants, which use water as a solvent.

The portion of industrial water usage that is consumptive varies widely
4.Recreation Recreational water use is usually a very small but growing percentage of total water use. Golf courses are often targeted as using excessive amounts of water, especially in drier regions.Additionally, recreational usage may reduce the availability of water for other users at specific times and places. For example, water retained in a reservoir to allow boating in the late summer is not available to farmers during the spring planting season Much? This much.. And available H Ways to conserve IT came out to be 1500 gallons per year for me ....
1 gallon = 3.8 litre 1. Agriculture any beneficial deduction in water loss, use, or waste;
a reduction in water use accomplished by implementation of water conservation or water efficiency measures
improved water management practices that reduce or enhance the beneficial use of water.
2. Industries
Set up a water conservation program
Ways to increase efficiency
Survey your plant operations

3. At Home 2 Aerators

Next time you're washing the peanut butter off your knife, ask yourself, "Hey do I really need this much water to wash off this peanut butter?" Our answer is "no!" Those little gizmos up there are low-flow aerators and here's how they can save you a lot of water.

Aerators save water just by adding air to the water. They don't take away the water pressure, but they do use a lot less water. Install aerators in all of your faucets--the bathrooms, the kitchen, everywhere there's a faucet. Aerators save you about 2 gallons of water per minute and they're cheap. Low flow showerheads
can save over 2 gallons per minute. It feels like a regular showerhead. It gets you wet just like a regular showerhead. And no, the water doesn't come out in little wimpy spurts. It just uses a lot less water than a regular showerhead. Leak Detection -
Do you hear running water? Jiggle the handle. Check the flapper. Just don't let it run! Your toilet can be the biggest water waster in your home, wasting up to 1,440 gallons per day, or one gallon per minute. And that's one gallon too much.
Faucets and Sinks

Drip! Drip! Drip! It'll drive you nuts. Water is being wasted and your money is going down the drain. Even a small drip can waste as much as 170 gallons of water each day, or 5,000 gallons per month.

DO Vist h2ouse.com for detailed information hy conserve? 1. No substistute 2. Can't Import Run your dishwasher and clothes washer with full loads, instead of several partial loads.
This will save thousands of gallons each month Rain is the ultimate source of fresh water. With the ground area around houses and buildings being cemented, particularly in cities and towns, rainwater, which runs off from terraces and roofs, was draining into low-lying areas and not percolating into the soil. Thereby, precious rainwater is squandered, as it is drained into the sea eventually. Rain water harvesting is a system by which, the rainwater that collects on the roofs and the area around the buildings is directed into open wells through a filter tank or into a percolation chamber , built specifically for this purpose. Rainwater is collected directly or recharged into the ground to improve ground water storage. Water that is not extracted from ground during rainy days is the water saved. Why to harvest rain?

In areas where there is inadequate groundwater supply or surface
resources are either lacking or insufficient, rainwater harvesting offers an ideal solution.

Helps in utilising the primary source of water and prevent the runoff from going into sewer or storm drains, thereby reducing the load on treatment plants.

Reduces urban flooding . Each day humans must replace 2.4 liters of water, some through drinking and the rest taken by the body from the foods eaten.
