Hydro-Therapy of Sea Water for its Efficient Reusability
Pages : 552-555
Today’s water crisis is widespread, and continuing with current policies for managing water will only widen and deepen that crisis. Water quality may be the biggest emerging water problem in the industrial world, with traces of chemicals and pharmaceuticals not removed by conventional drinking water treatment processes now recognised as carcinogens and endocrine disrupters. During the 20th century the world population tripled, while water use for human purposes multiplied six fold. The most obvious uses of water for people are drinking, cooking, bathing, cleaning, etc. Worldwide, industry uses about twice as much water as households, mostly for cooling in the production of electricity. Far more water is needed to produce food and fibre and maintain the natural environment. An unacceptably large portion of the world population— one person in five—does not have access to safe and affordable drinking water, and half the world’s people do not have access to sanitation. Each year at least 3–4 million people die of waterborne diseases, including more than 2 million children who die of diarrhoea, according to World Health Organization statistics (WHO 1996).
