Conserve water and save the future – Icon Infra Shelters India PVT.Ltd

Summer is here and we’ll soon be faced with the severity of water shortage in many parts of the city. With increasing urbanization and changing climatic conditions, conserving water has become the critical need of the hour.

Since every drop counts, we must make use of the rain water by investing in rain harvesting techniques. Every building must be equipped to arrest the natural water and convert it for usable purposes.

A city once aplenty with natural lakes has sadly not conserved the natural body with many of them drying up or turning into garbage grounds. Serious policies are necessary to revive and maintain the city lakes.

Every individual can contribute in many ways. Caution needs to be exercised with every day usage of water and care needs to be taken to see that there is no wastage or over-usage of water. The water rejected from the water purifier can be stored to use for purposes other than drinking like watering of plants or washing clothes.

Installation of individual water meter in an apartment complex is seen as an expensive affair but it should be seen as a long term and important investment that will help in curbing unwanted consumption of water by levying charges as per the usage.

Builders too have a collective responsibility towards the society. Green building is expected to be the buzzword in the coming years. Best building practices like incorporating water efficiency and conservation in the construction and using water-efficient plumbing fixtures need to be adopted.

*Experts in the field point out that green building will be the next buzzword which will drive sales in the near future.  “Builders have been adopting methods to conserve water and energy for the past few years. Now the concept gathers momentum and we feel this as a step towards the green building concept,” said M V Antony, president, CREDAI-Kochi.
