Water conservation is any action that results in the reduction of water loss, usage or waste as well as the preservation of water quality and reservoir levels.
The goals of water conservation efforts include:
Sustainability. To ensure availability for future generations, the withdrawal of fresh water from an ecosystem should not exceed its natural replacement rate.
Energy conservation. Water pumping, delivery, and wastewater treatment facilities consume a significant amount of energy.
Habitat conservation. Minimizing human water use helps to preserve fresh water habitats for local wildlife and migrating waterfowl, as well as reducing the need to build new dams and other water diversion infrastructure.
Low flush toilets
Using low flow taps in wash basins
Reporting leaks in public places
Water can also be conserved by following the most obvious advice, such as shortening showers and not running the tap while brushing your teeth.
Some researchers have suggested that water conservation efforts should be primarily directed at farmers, in light of the fact that crop irrigation accounts for 70% of the world's fresh water use.Many water-saving devices (such as low-flush toilets) that are useful in homes can also be useful for business water saving.
