Wastage of wa­ter

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - RIDA ZAHEER

It is a com­mon fact that wa­ter is one of the most es­sen­tial re­sources, which is the need of all liv­ing things. Un­for­tu­nately we hu­man be­ings do not know the ac­tual value of wa­ter. We waste this pre­cious gift of God ruth­lessly with­out think­ing how im­por­tant it is. Due to wastage of this nat­u­ral re­source, wa­ter pol­lu­tion is on the rise, which is af­fect­ing our lives.

Ac­cord­ing to the re­search of a US ge­ol­o­gist, peo­ple use 8-100 litres of wa­ter ev­ery­day and 75% of wa­ter goes down the drain. We waste 75-76 litres ev­ery­day. We have to avoid the wastage of wa­ter and sug­gest to all and sundry to value this nat­u­ral gift. —Karachi
