Nature supplies us water in abundance right at our door steps, without the ‘kilometers & kilometers’ of pipe line!
It sounds crazy, especially when we do not have enough to drink. A mere look at our daily water consumption, will tell us where we stand and what the future can be, if we continue like this.
Though freshwater consumption varies from place to place and community to community, an average estimate per person per day could be about 135 liters. Break could be estimated as,
- Drinking & Cooking: ~15 Liters
- Washing & Bathing: 60 Liters
- Flushing: 60 Liters
All this freshwater ends up in drain after usage, since it has organic wastes (food for bacteria), it imbalances any water ecosystem like lake or river where it is let in to. Polluting the drinking water sources.
What is the price we pay for our drinking water?
– almost nothing at the moment! The actual price will be known only when the ground water is gone.
Is there a way out?
– yes, there is.
First Stage Implementation: Wastewater recycling
Second Stage Implementation: Harvest rain water to Drink, Cook, Wash & Bathe.
With above two implemented, we are safe and in sync with nature.
Water Crisis is only a water management issue. Nature supplies us water in abundance right at our door steps, without the ‘kilometers & kilometers’ of pipe line!
