Conservation - Water is often perceived as a cheap, readily available
resource. The first choice in providing water for growing demand is often
additional supply from surface or ground water sources, rather from conservation.
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.
Water Conservation has different meanings for different people and organizations. It may remind us of constructing dams and reservoirs; of recharging ground water aquifers, or using lower quality water whenever possible in order to save better water. Water conservation encompasses all this. It involves reducing the demand for water by developing water conservation habits, stopping wasteful uses, decreasing peak consumption and charging for water at the appropriate rates. It also means taking advantage of technological developments and improved management techniques; coordinating water resource planning and management with land-use planning and economic and social planning; and establishing new or updated standards and regulations. In short, water conservation means optimal water use.
