Why should you manage water?
The severe actuality is that less than 1% of all the water on Earth is good for people, the remainder are found in the oceans, or in ice pack formations. All this is salt water and would command many other resources to sanitize and desalinate, making the entire system a non viable alternate.

The population grew from 6 billion people in 1999 to 7 billion people in 2011, that is 1 billion further people to distribute this limited resource. That is 1 billion people to nourish, in consequence larger farms are mandatory to supply this exponential development, and additional water to prosper all these crops.

How can I ensure that I am assisting to keep this precious resource?
Luckily the heavens effect rain, in certain places more than others, still this rain water helps to restore our natural resources, and so I have generally found that rainwater harvesting can not only play an abundant capacity in my “heal the world” part for society, but also save some hard earned cash for me..
I have 2 polyethylene water depository tanks at my abode, the water collected in these water storage tanks is used for my daily requirements, and in helping me water my garden and top up my swimming pool.
I am now looking into plumbing the water through to my geysers, toilets, washing machine, and dishwasher, and if my calculations are precise I should quarter my municipal water usage.

Can I do more to assist on a greater scale?
I have forever believed that there is intensity in numbers, and I do not figure that it would be an improbable dream to plead the governments of the world to help local farmers in the acquirement of bigger water tanks for their crops and fields. Perhaps look into not only rainwater harvesting but also storm-water harvesting to lower the blow that is done by the agriculture and farming industries of the world.
I deduce that this will not be nearly enough to abate the absolute dilemma however it is at least something and could imaginably save millions of kilo litres of water each year if it were properly enforced by our governments.

How can I go about getting additional information?
Well a simple internet search on water conservation will turn up proof on the subject, I feel that the advice is very diluted, asking you to turn off your tap when brushing your teeth, or bath in less water, or shower for only 1 minute and get water saving shower heads. Even if you be loyal to all these instructions you could conceivably notice a 10% drop in water usage, and I do not think that is nearly enough for a natural resource and commodity that each and every human requires as a basic life giving necessity.
With the progression of global warming, and the act that we as mere mortals have no command over how much rain we get, where we get it and when we will get it. I have to say that I would credit that the general population would try a little harder to save water.
Use water storage tanks for rainwater harvesting for the most capable way of saving water, or of course you could drill your own well, but please keep in mind that this method is firstly remarkably expensive, and secondly that if you inform your local municipality of this they will meter your well and charge you accordingly, as they are of the theory that water under the ground within the confines of their border also belongs to them.

Description of rainwater harvesting.
Rainwater harvesting is the accumulation and storing, of rainwater. It has been used to provide drinking water, water for livestock, water for irrigation or to fill in aquifers in a procedure called groundwater recharge.
Rainwater attained from the roofs of houses, tents and local institutions, can make an exceptional increase to the accessibility of drinking water. Water amassed from the ground, at times from areas which are notably prepared for this purpose, is called storm-water harvesting. In some cases, rainwater may be the only applicable, or economical water source.

When you make the decision to conserve the Earth’s resources, you will need to look for the perfect equipment, there are many water management and rainwater harvesting systems available, my favorite water storage tank supplier is SBS Water Systems, visit their website for information.
