Our beautiful world is not the same as what it was at the time of its creation. Increasing human requirements with its popularization changed it completely. The urban settlement is very much responsible for it. These things are best felt when we face any crisis of basic things in our livelihood.
As, for example, the power cut at the time of running the water motor. This situation is faced by all of us at least once in a lifetime. Then we realize that how the world is transformed by the human hands. With the construction of buildings and metal roads, the seepage of rainwater has been diminished. So there is a chance to have a scarcity of groundwater. In the contemporary period, one of the most common crises is of the availability of drinkable water.
How do you preserve the Rain Water?
In the regions where there is a continuous crisis of fresh water, we should make use of the rainwater by preserving it, during different times. For this, we have to first clean our terrace and the attached shade, so that whenever rainfall occurs you can collect the rainwater which is coming through the shade. Then collect in clean tanks or containers, don’t keep it open. Cover it and don’t allow entering any dust or littering in it. If you want to keep your storage clean then maintain an observation to your tanks and gutters in every six months. This is very important step to lead a healthy life.
