Water To Drink

water to drinkWater to drink became an urgent need lately. Almost all countries in the world experiencing similar problems. It has been so long clean water suitable for consumption is very hard to come by for most inhabitants of the earth. A UN report from 2006 states that more than 20% of the world population does not have adequate access to clean water suitable for consumption.

In some areas of the world, the water may be available, but are often not suitable for consumption because of the level of pollution is severe. And to make it viable for drinking will require an uphill battle. Water to drink really has become something that is expensive and difficult to achieve, especially for the poor.

Water to drink is a basic need of every human being to survive, because of this it has become a fundamental right of every human being, even more than that, water for drink also become the right of every living being that needs it. This becomes something very worthy to fight for.

Wise proverb says ” every leader responsible for the led “. Every leader in the world responsible for the people he leads, this means they are responsible for the basic needs of the people, one of them are water to drink.

Leaders or a state government has the authority to create and establish a policy. Government policies are essential for grip and for direction, where a country is going. A policy will describe how the well-being of society can be achieved, by what means the primary needs will be met.

Water also need protection from those who are not responsible and makes the environment polluted. Here the active role of the government with its law enforcement division is indispensable. The parties to this destruction must be dealt with firmly.

Above all, the preservation of water becomes the responsibility of all mankind. Plants need water, animals need water, and humans also need water, as a matter of fact much more than the others. Human beings are the most widely used water, ironically a major cause of water pollution.

Mean a while, the need of water to drink is very urgent.

Water Contamination

fined waterBroadly speaking, water contamination can be defined as the deviation of the water properties of the normal state, or the purity of nature. This happens when water is heavily contaminated by remnants of sewage and waste.

Judging from the result, there are two kinds of pollutants that enter the waters. The first is that the material is toxic and damaging that can kill micro-organisms living in the water. The second is that materials enriching the waters, so that it can help stimulate the growth of micro-organisms and algae.

Water contamination can be classified into 3 types :
1. Contamination in physics, this pollution can be caused by floating material and buildup.
2. Chemical contamination, this pollution caused by hazardous substances, could be carbon compounds or inorganic compounds.
3. Biological contamination, this pollution caused by certain organisms such as pathogenic microbes, algae, or plants that could potentially carry the water hazard.

People often assume that the waste industry is the largest contributor to the occurrence of water contamination. Actually in quantity, industrial waste does not the biggest pollutants factor. Truly are the biggest pollutants factor comes from of everyday human activities, such as household waste, agricultural waste, stock husbandry waste, fishery waste, transportation, etc..
water contamination
For example, household waste is discharged into the river can disrupt the microbial life in the water, resulting in a decrease in the quantity and quality of aquatic biota. Remnants of water-soluble fertilizers can also fertilize aquatic plants that trigger the silting of the river or lake. Result of erosion and mud carried down to the sea will sink, and cover the surface of coral reefs, causing the death of coral reefs.

Currently waste from industrial activities can be said to have brought a serious threat to water contamination. Although many industries are implementing advanced technologies in waste water treatment, but still there are industries with no qualified industrial waste water treatment standards. It is very unfortunate, the regulations have been made, but there are still those who violate them.
water contamination
Waste from industry-which does not meet these standards provide a serious threat to the entire ecosystem. Because through natural mechanisms such as wind, water flow, and the movement of soil, the diffusion of the waste can spread quickly everywhere.

Need to build a collective consciousness to prevent water contamination. Not easy, but not impossible to achieve. Humans should be fully aware of the importance of water for life.
