Water Conservation

A fair share for all of us
When our generation runs out of healthy drinking water,
what will we do?

Without water conservation our lakes will dry out, pollution kicks in, no healthy drinking water for humans and animals, for agricultural use, for human food. Updated conservation education explains why nature conservation is so important
drought is a part of changing climate. Climate change will endanger many humans + animals. Learn online how to reduce human impact on Earth's climate, how to protect your family from environmental disasters, how to fight air pollution, climate change, the global warming trend
Water is the foundation of the body!
If the foundation is of poor quality,
strength + longevity will not be achieved.
Water conservation is very important!

Bear Springs creek started on Bear Springs Blossom Nature Preserve in Pipe Creek, Texas, but stopped running because overgrazing destroyed all top soil and with it the - sponge- that was able to hold the rainwater and slowly release it into our spring. water conservation programs and workshops help to secure water supply. Water conservation actions can help to revive the Bear Springs Blossom spring. BSB water conservation facts online to live sustainable, to have a better life In the past water conservation was normal behavior everywhere on Earth.
You can find the use of water conservation in the Bible and other religious texts that give us a good insight into the water storage and conservation systems that were used for millenia.
But rising populations, growing industrialization, and expanding agriculture have pushed up the demand for water.
Efforts have been made to collect water by building dams and reservoirs and digging wells; some countries have also tried to recycle and desalinate (remove salts) water.
Water conservation has become the need of the day. The idea of ground water recharging by harvesting rainwater is gaining importance in many countries.
In Nature, water seeps gently into the ground as vegetation breaks the fall. Soil acts like a sponge and feeds wells, feeds like creeks, building rivers and lakes.
But scraping off the natural protection of our earth, changed water seepage very much. Faster water runoff, more erosion, and more floods are the answer to men's destructive behavior.
What can you do?
Use water filters instead of bottled water. You will get better water, save tons of money and reduce landfill waste by refilling a bottle with filtered tap water. You can even use a water filter to safely drink collected rainwater for additional water conservation.
Use a rainwater catchment system, collect water from your roof to water your garden.

Look at your sprinkler system: Most sprinkler systems are water wasters.
Look that only your lawn is watered and not the house, sidewalk, or street.
Water your lawn and garden in the morning or evening when temperatures are cooler to minimize evaporation.
Use drip irrigation for shrubs and trees to apply water directly to the roots where it's needed.
Water your plants deeply but less frequently to encourage deep root growth and drought tolerance.
Choose native shrubs and ground-covers instead of turf for hard-to-water areas such as steep slopes and separated strips.
Collect the water you use for rinsing fruits and vegetables, then reuse it to water houseplants.
Plant in the fall when conditions are cooler and rainfall is more plentiful.
Spreading a layer of organic mulch around plants retains moisture and saves water, time and money.
Adjust your lawn mower to a higher setting. A taller lawn shades roots and holds soil moisture better than if it is closely clipped.

When washing dishes by hand, don't let the water run while rinsing. Fill one sink with wash water and the other with rinse water.

Air conditioners and old ice-makers are cooled with wasted flows of water. Upgrading to air-cooled appliances will save water.

When running your clothes washer and dishwasher only when full, you save up to 1,000 gallons a month.

Covering your pool and spa save a lot of water and energy.

Use a broom instead of a hose to clean your driveway and sidewalk and save water every time.
Most of the new appliances use much less water, less energy, saving water and money. New appliances are more water and energy efficient.

When filling a bath tub, plug the tub before turning the water on, then adjust the temperature as the tub fills up.

Turn off the water while brushing your teeth and save 25 gallons a month.

Make suggestions to your employer about ways to save water and money at work.
Encourage your school system and local government to develop and promote water conservation among children and adults.
Report broken pipes, open hydrants and errant sprinklers to the property owner or your water provider.

Check your toilet flapper if it closes tightly after flushing.

New dishwasher clean better, so you can cut back on rinsing.

Insulate hot water pipes for more immediate hot water at the faucet and for energy savings.

Share our water conservation tips with friends and neighbors.

When you are washing your hands, don't let the water run while you lather.
Turn off the water while you wash your hair to save up to 150 gallons a month.
Turn off the water while you shave and save up to 300 gallons a month.
Wash your pets outdoors in an area of your lawn that needs water.
When you give your pet fresh water, don't throw the old water down the drain. Use it to water your trees or shrubs.

Live responsible - Show Responsibility!!
"Responsibility is born when the love for others (your children, grandchildren)
grows stronger than the love for yourself." Peter Bonenberger

We need to protect our soil cover, we need to protect our forests, our grass covered prairies when we want to protecting our water catchment systems.
A Rainwater harvesting system on every house should be mandatory, erosion control should be the duty of every developer.
Conservation of water in the agricultural sector is essential since water is necessary for the growth of plants and crops. A depleting water table and a rise in salinity due to overuse of chemical fertilizers and pesticides has made matters serious. Various methods of water harvesting and recharging have been and are being applied all over Earth to tackle the problem.
In areas where rainfall is low and water is scarce, the local people have used tank systems. Tanks are constructed either by dam building or by excavating the ground and collecting rainwater.
Water- reservoirs, cistern, dams, and other methods can be used to check water flow and accumulate run-off. When there is no rain, water from these structures can be used to cultivate crops.
Shelter belts of trees and bushes along the edge of agricultural fields slow down the wind speed and reduce evaporation and erosion.
Planting of trees, grass, and bushes breaks the force of rain and helps rainwater penetrate the soil.
Fog and dew contain substantial amounts of water that can be used directly by adapted plant species.
Artificial surfaces such as netting-surfaced traps or polyethylene sheets can be exposed to fog and dew.
The resulting water can be used for crops.
Contour farming can be use in hilly areas and in lowland areas for paddy fields. Farmers recognize the efficiency of contour-based systems for conserving soil and water for many centuries.
Online Booklet about Water Conservation for kids
BSB Water conservation explained with Water facts and with BSB water conservation lectures: Be smart conserve water, water conservation is the only way to protect the future of Earth's children. Conserve water to secure biodiversity, water conservation to secure healthy food supply, water conservation to secure good drinking water
If you are a responsible human, water conservation is one of your tasks.
Simple things contribute to water conservation:
If the savings look minimal - don't worry = Every drop counts!
We all can make a difference! Encourage your family to keep looking for new ways to conserve water in and around your home.
Make sure that your home is leak-free. Many homes have leaking pipes that are water wasters and cost you money.
Do not leave the tap running while you are brushing your teeth or soaping your face.
Check your toilet tank for leaks.
Avoid flushing the toilet unnecessarily.
Use as little water as necessary for each flush.
When washing the car, use water from a bucket and not a hosepipe.
Do not throw away water that has been used for washing vegetables:
Use it to water your plants
Use native grasses instead of foreign water suckers!
Store water in a variety of ways:
Place a drum on a raised platform directly under the rainwater collection source. You can also collect water in a bucket during the rainy season.

You see there are many ways to conserve water, many ways to safe water, to keep our drinking water supply in a good order.

Article for people living in Texas:
With Texas suffering frequent, widespread drought, planting a landscape naturally adapted to dry conditions is one way to both conserve water and care for your yard.
Water conservation becomes particularly critical in the summer, when water use can surge anywhere between 30 to 60 percent, of which lawn and garden watering typically gulp up nearly 40 %. Moreover, many cities are implementing mandatory water restrictions in order to conserve already stretched local supplies. Such restrictions can limit landscape irrigation to two days a week, or frequently less.
Texas A&M AgriLife Extension has outlined several actions you can take to comply with public conservation practices by strengthening your yard’s tolerance to drought.
Mulch all planted areas. Mulch keeps soil moist and slows evaporation. Plant drought-tolerant plants. Using native and adaptive plants reduces the amount of landscape water needed.
Mow your lawn at a higher setting. Taller grass can create shade and reduce evaporation.
Check each sprinkler head to ensure each is functioning properly.
Consider installing a drip irrigation system, which can be much more efficient than spray irrigation.
