Water water everywhere, not a drop to drink

If the water scarcity is continuing like this, we will have to face another world war where the forces will fight for water. A thought about overcoming such a situation


When the first two world wars have been fought for political power, the third one will certainly for water. That is the prevailing situation in the world as far as the availability of water is concerned. According to several reports around 700 million people in 43 countries are suffering from water scarcity. This will go up to 1.8 billion by 2025. By 2030, majority of the world's population will be living in areas where there will be huge water scarcity.

There are several reasons for this crisis. Some are natural while some are created by human beings. However, many actions of men are responsible for the natural causes too. Global warming, changes in the climatic conditions, decreased rate of rains etc are the results of our actions. The processes of development when turned against the nature, there started the deviations in the climatic conditions. Bu cutting down trees, filling up water bodies, we have constructed many towers of our success, but we never thought that all those towers are the monuments of nature.

Anyway, it is not possible to go back to the past to rectify our mistakes, but it is possible to stop further damages to the nature and natural resources. We should think about solving the crisis without damaging the nature further. Though it is easy to study the equation of hydrogen and oxygen making water molecules, it is not easy to prepare water artificially. It is not financially viable too. Hence the only solution is to control the use of water and to distribute the available water uniformly to all areas where there is a life.

Water should be pure for drinking purpose, but need not to be so for agricultural or industrial purpose. Hence it is better to use the ground water for drinking purpose. Drilling water wells is the best solution here. However the processes of drilling should not affect the environment. Advanced technology has come up with nature friendly water well drill rigs, top head drive drill rigs etc which will help to drill the earth without disturbing the ecology of the surroundings. Instead of going for cheap options which may create further damage to the surroundings, it is always better to depend on such sophisticated equipment.

Ground water level is not uniform everywhere. Now the second step is to distribute the water equally and uniformly. By creating canals or laying pipelines it can be solved to some extent. It may not be practical everywhere. Here there is no other option than to rely on the nearby water source. It is better to use such areas where there is water scarcity for commercial activities which require less water. Heavy manufacturing industries can be set up at such places. They may not mind purchasing water for their use as they can make huge profits here.

Now coming to agriculture and other areas where water is needed, it may not be necessarily pure to use in agriculture. Hence we can use the water from other open water bodies such as rivers, lakes etc. However, the pollution of water should be controlled. Otherwise it will not be suitable for these activities too. It is always better not to allow any types of polluting industries nearby such water bodies. Existing all such industries should be replaced to areas that do not have much water. Riverside and lake sides are for inhabiting and these areas should be converted to housing colonies.
Now the next step should be to avoid using natural resources to maximum extent. If we use hard disks and memory cards, we can reduce the use of paper and thus can save a lot of trees. Thus if you avoid package food and beverages and make the natural drinks such as fruit juices, coconut water etc, it can save you a lot of water as food and beverages industries are the largest consumers of water.

This is high time to think about conserving the existing water for our future. We cannot buy water always with the money as those bottled water too is taken from the nature.
