Is water conservation necessary? Give reasons.

Answer :

Water is available on Earth in large amount but most of the water is saline and therefore can’t be consumed. Only 1% of the total water is available in potable form. Therefore, water is very precious for survival. Applications of water is not limited. It is used for various processes such as for daily usage, irrigation in crops, by industries for goods production etc. Since, the supply of the potable water is less and the demand is very high with increasing population. Therefore it is necessary to save the water so that there is no shortage of water for future generation. As there is no survival if there is no water.
