Drinking Water Sustainability Essay -- Potable Water Scarcity
Introduction The importance of urine, in relation to the Earth and its inhabitants, stand only be rivaled by the importance of oxygen. Living things depend on water in their habitat. However, the abundance of water is not as serious as the usefulness of the water. Much of the Earth is made up of this grotesque liquid combination of hydrogen and oxygen, but the amount that stomach be used for human consumption is less than one percent (Boland, 2003). In essence, humans use potable water, water that is suitable for drinking and cooking, to remunerate their basic needs. Drinking (potable) water is free from poisonous substances, contaminants, and disease-causing organisms, which would be insecure for human consumption (Gulflink). In pre-historic times, inhabitants understood the importance of water sustainability for survival of the fittest of the population. In ancient civilizations, water sustainability and potable water were both emphasised as ideals for the progress and cont inuity of the societies. Today, humans continue to progress in their understanding and utilization of technological processes to develop potable water. As a result, water filtration, water management, and water conservation efforts are becoming to a greater extent effective and commonplace. Thus, as the technology continues to improve the quality of water as a resource, we cannot forget the basis to which past cultures had accepted the continual human race or sustainability of this limited resource.Abstract A Historical Perspective humanss existence relies on water, and he cannot survive for more than 7 days without it. M.N. Baker, a water quality historian, states, In the earliest days of the human race, water was taken as found. It might be unalloyed and abundant, plentiful but mud... ...ment in the twenty-first century What should we do, not what can we do? The National Academies. . Accessed 11 October 2004.Phippen, Kari.
