There is a threat of "Water War" unless water conservation and management are taken seriously.

  • Across the world, water consumptions is on the increase. Based on the present increase in demand, the economically exploitable water should run out in some critical areas by the year 2005 and by the year 2025, two-thirds of the world's population could be facing serious water shortages.
  • Less than 1% of the world's water is available for drinking and other purposes, including agriculture and industry. This supply comes from rivers, dams and ground-water sources.
  • The availability of something as basic and fundamental as water is likely to become one of the most urgent and destablising resource issues in year to come.
  • Industry in America pollutes, more than half the volume of all water with deadly pollutants. They use freshwater to discharge wastes of many kinds into streams, lakes and oceans and make the water non-potable. The pollutants are asbestos , phosphates and nitrates , mercury , lead , caustic soda and other sodium compounds, sulphur and sulphuric acid , oils, and petrochemicals .
  • Manufacturing plants pour off undiluted corrosives , poisons , and other noxious by-products . The construction industry discharges slurries of gypsum , cement , abrasives , metals , and poisonous solvents . Another pervasive group of contaminants entering food chains is the polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) compounds, components of lubricants , plastic wrappers , and adhesives also hot water discharged by factories and power plants causes so-called thermal pollution by increasing water temperatures. Such increases change the level of oxygen dissolved in a body of water, thereby disrupting the water's ecological balance, and killing off some plant and animal species while encouraging the overgrowth of others.
