Water Management

Rating: 5.0
Entire India is facing water crisis
ground water going low
ponds, lakes, rivers drying up
rain water flowing to sea
water wastage reaching high
arsenic made our life horrible
work should have begin
two decades ago
we are late
but not too late.

If you want to come out
of this crisis
change your behavior first
stop wasting water
we use 5600 litres water
to produce 1 kg of rice
where China use only 350 litres
see other nations
use modern technology
reduce wastage.

Harvest rain water at home
to recharge ground water
make plenty reservoirs
reserve rain water as much as you can
don't allow it to go to sea
Maharashtra do this
They supply drinking water
round the year
to whole Mumbai city
from its rain water reservoirs.

Reuse sewage water
water comes out of your homes
is black and grey
black from the toilets
grey from kitchen
gray water treatment involves
only 10 percent cost
compared to black
70 percent of Singapore drinks
treated sewage water.

We agree with you 'we are late.... but not too late'. Nice overview of the serious water crisis staring our villages and cities today. We hope people adopt ways to tide over the crisis as per these practical suggestions. Thanks.
