Water conservation Irish Ingram

Water conservation is the act or preserving, controlling, and development of water. It can include surface water or ground water.

Acts and laws- 1.) Land And Water Conservation Fund- helps support 98% of land in the US counties, uses no taxpayer dollars to support itself. 2.) Soil and Water Resources Conservation Act- reviews status on soil and water on no federal land and assesses their meet present and future demands

Benefits- money saved, protects the resource of drinking water, reduces water pollution, reduces health concerns (pollution), maintains health of aquatic habitats and other resources, saves energy and time used in pumps, as well as heating and treating water

The United States use nearly 79.6 billion gallons of ground water a day. According to wellowner.org that is equal to every human using 2,923 12 oz cans a day. On TreeHugger.com, June 24, 2009, an article named 'We Use How Much Water? Scary Water Footprints, Country by Country' a fact they posted is the following, "The countries where water poverty is the worst and water usage is the lowest are Mozambique, Rwanda, Haiti, Ethiopia, and Uganda - these five use 15 liters or less daily." All of those five countries combine use near 80 billion gallons of water every 11,005,914 years.

I found the following five facts on fcwa.org; 1.) without water the Earth would look like the moon, 2.) every living organism need water to live, 3.) water makes up 83% of our blood, 70% of our brain, and 90% of our lungs, 4.) most fruits range from 70-95% water, 5.) a 5-10 minute shower uses 10-25 gallons of water
