Why is conserv water important? in
EARTH is covered in water 71 % percent of
-97% of all the water on the earth is salt water, which is not suitable for drinking. Only 3% of all the water is fresh water, and only 1% is available for drinking. -2% of the available freshwater sources is locked in ice caps and glaciers.
Even though water eventually returns to Earth through the water cycle, it's not always returned to the same spot, or in the same quantity and quality By reducing the amount of water we use and waste, we can better help against future drought years.
Failing to conserve water can eventually lead to a lack of an adequate, healthy water supply, which can have drastic consequences in rising costs, reduced food supplies, health hazards, and political conflict.
If we reduce our use of water, we conserve the energy required to process and deliver it to homes, business, farms, and communities, and this in turn reduces pollution and conserve fuel resources.
Large amounts of water are required by firefighters, hospitals, gas stations, street cleaners, health clubs, gyms, and restaurants all require large amounts of water to provide services to the community
