The most important compound found in nature is water. Water is not only necessary for living but to run our everyday life smoothly. In fact, it will totally be absurd to think our life without water. Since water is so important in our life we must be careful of its quality. In fact, our body is made up of nearly seventy percent of water.
Water is not just important for drinking but its various range of use makes it the most commonly used substance by humans. Besides drinking it is used for agriculture and industrialization. They are used in steam engines, to produce hydro-electricity and many more. They also have entertainment values such as swimming. Thus we can understand the role of water in life.
The quality of water means various characteristics of water which includes chemical features, biological features, and radiological features. Proper quality of water is a relative term as the term “proper quality” for water can be different for different purposes. For example, the quality of water that is proper for irrigation may not necessarily be proper for drinking purpose. Hence the standard of water required varies according to the use. The quality of water is generally assessed in relation to ecosystems, safety of human and animal contact as well as drinking water.
Water Quality and Health
Human, as well as animals, consume water every day. Hence the quality of water is directly related to our health. Various kinds of infections and diseases can enter our body through water. If the water quality is not maintained to a healthy standard then we will constantly suffer from various diseases. Today various data show that hundreds of thousands of people especially who are children die due to water-related disease and millions of people get infected with the water-related diseases. The problem is quite astounding in underdeveloped and developing countries which is due to the lack of education. Hence people must be made aware of the importance of water quality to save millions of lives.
Water Quality and Agriculture
Agriculture is one of the most important sectors where the quality of water is very important. It is necessary to have a proper quality of water to gain agricultural yields. The quality of water may vary according to the crop. Lack of proper quality of water can be devastating for agriculture as it can cause more damage than good. Providing good quality of water for agriculture ensures food security for the nation as well as the whole world.
