Water as we know is life and as such we cannot do anything without it. It is therefore imperative to state that, water should be handled with care because without water, life will be something else and this is so frightening.
Water should be considered something really necessary and as such should be regarded and treated with the upmost respect. Most times people think that water is just something they can mess around with without actually thinking that without water, life will be tough. No wonder the popular saying, water is life!
Humans get water from different sources and those sources are therefore known to be very important no matter what. Examples of water sources include streams, rivers, rain, wells, boreholes, pipe borne, sea and so on. All these sources are very crucial in all aspect and as such most people from different part of the world either depend on one of them for survival. Therefore these sources are very important and as such should be handled with care. All these actually constitute water bodies and also contribute to aquatic life in one way or the other and as such should be regarded very important.
Although there might be abundant availability of water, the question now is, how clean is this water for both human consumption and aquatic life? Indeed one may say water only becomes clean from the source it is coming from and this may not be entirely true because water can be treated to become clean for both consumption and aquatic life. It is due to these issues that there are now an abundance of education programs about water. This education is basically to ensure that water is preserved and used properly to avoid any sort of problem whatsoever.
Water becomes what it is, depending on what the people who need it will use it for. As already known, water can be used in so many ways even though the most important is drinking it. Water is noted to be used in construction and this of course is very important because without it, infrastructure will be nothing to talk about. Again water is known to support aquatic life in so many ways and it is these same creatures that sometimes supply man with protein in the form of fish. Of course it is known well that without water, farming will be highly impossible and as such hunger will be a common thing on earth. But because of the down pour of water which of course is rain, it helps crops to grow well and this growth will later contribute to food availability.
While the amount of water may be abundant (two-thirds of the planet is covered in water), water as it is may be polluted in so many ways. For instance, there are instances whereby some harmful chemicals from factories diffuse into water and make it polluted for both humans and aquatic life. It is therefore imperative to state that, when these water bodies are so polluted most at times what is often seen are dead animals floating on top of the water, especially fishes and other vulnerable creatures.
