Water Scarcity… a need for conservation…

Water availability is fast becoming an issue in India. According to a new report of the NITI Aayog, 40% of Indian’s population will not have access to drinking water by 2030. Water Conservation, recycling water & reducing Water Wastage are the key initiatives that need to be implemented.

For example, it can be made compulsory to use a “Bio-Toilet” solution that use just 1.2 litres of water per flush (conventional toilet consume 5 to 7 litres of water per flush) AND recycle and use of treated water to be used in toilets should be made compulsory & buildings norms for occupancy approvals.

Secondly, innovative products like “Hyper-pressed bricks” that do not need the curing process need to be used in construction.

Thirdly, wherever possible the municipalities should setup large capacity water desalination plants to convert sea water into drinking water.

Fourthly, in agriculture too one can use drip irrigation and use of “reusable plastic trays” that converse water needs to be adopted at large. For afforestation projects, use solutions like – “WatetBoxx” and “GrowBoxx”.
