In fact, every continent is affected by water scarcity in some way. How is this possible? Because freshwater resources account for only around 2.5 percent of the world’s water, and 98.8 percent of that is in ice and groundwater. In other words, only a very small part of it can be accessed and used by human beings. Water recycling is a process that helps people make the most use of the water they need on a daily basis.
Many of us have developed water habits that are so deeply ingrained that it would be difficult to drastically decrease our water use, and honestly, residential water use doesn’t even come close to industrial water use. While we should try to use less water, an effective and sustainable method is to treat the wastewater we produce.
There are some water treatment technologies that can treat and recycle water. Recycling water does decrease the amount of water you use and treated water can be used widely.
Remember when the BP fiasco happened and gallons of oil pollution were discharged into our oceans? Gallons of untreated wastewater are released into our oceans every day. Pollution water is the cause of the current dead zones. Treated wastewater can improve the quality of water and soils where it is released and benefit the environment.
For industries that create a high volume of wastewater, transporting that water somewhere can be very expensive. Having on-site water treatment and recycling technology drastically reduces transportation costs. The demand for new water sources will also decrease, as treated wastewater will be more readily available.
Wastewater that isn’t treated and recycled is often released into our water sources. Untreated wastewater does not naturally decompose. Instead, it pollutes our oceans, rivers and streams, deteriorating the quality of water and potentially destroying the ecosystem where it is released. Recycling wastewater is the only way to avoid future water shortages and decrease the environment damage of water pollution.
When you take water from rivers and oceans for things like irrigation and wetlands, you will consume a portion of drinking water. When you recycle water and replace it, you can minimize the potential loss of drinking water. This leaves the greatest amount of water for future generations to meet their drinking needs.
Water recycling can help communities create a dependable water source that does not endanger residents or the environment. So, let us promote water cycling and protect our water resources and the environment together.
As the shortage of water resources becomes more and more serious, we need more efficient water recycling. Therefore, water treatment becomes more and more important. At the same time, the requirements for domestic water treatment technology and water treatment equipment are getting higher and higher.
