How can we mitigate water?

Manage water scarcity: install special tanks that store rainwater for irrigation, use drip irrigation for more efficient irrigation, establish schools for farmers where they learn to adapt to climate change with drought-resistant crops, crop rotation and sustainable ways of raising livestock. Communities, citizen groups and individuals can play an active role in protecting their drinking water sources from contamination. The following resources provide information on source water protection and measures you can take locally to protect drinking water. Preventing industry and people from pouring toxic substances into our water supplies and being able to accurately monitor water quality are fundamental steps in improving access to clean water.

Consumers should safely dispose of toxic substances instead of throwing them down the drain. Fortunately, there are already many good examples from all over the world of how this can be done. Cities are integrating trees, wetlands and farmland to recharge and clean water, increase carbon storage and reduce the risk of floods. Farmers choose agroforestry and methods that improve soil health.

Communities protect their local watersheds and manage forests in a way that improves groundwater recharge. Put a few drops of food coloring in the toilet tank. If, without rinsing, the colorant starts to appear in the container. Your automatic washing machine uses 30 to 35 gallons per cycle.

Wastewater leaks 24 hours a day, seven days a week. An inexpensive washing machine is usually enough to stop them.
