    Why water conservation is important?

    Water conservation is important because it is something that is a precious resource.  More water is used and wasted than can ever be replenished.

    Depending on your area it is because water is in scarce quantity. Outside that it is a scam so that the rich can get richer on Blue Gold which they are happily going about doing. It was on this episode of Conspiracy Theory by Ventura.

    No water - no life.

    Simple, straightforward as that - humans would cease to exist.

    I certainly agree that water is a precious resource and shouldn't be wasted, not because of lack of supply but because it's simply the prudent thing to do. However, the earth is 1/3 land mass & 2/3 water which means the real shortage now and in the future will be in  Land/Real Estate.

    We have too much Water & Not enough Sand.

    The Water issue has been resolved for many years via "Desalination" which is already in use throughout the world. So I guess if we deplete the vast oceans of H2O, Mars here we come!

    We should be more focused on the real pending issue which is pollination and related subjects. Pesticides and other contaminants are "taking out" the bees.

    Bottom Line -  You'll probably drop from lack of sustenance because you can't get a ham sandwich about 1000 years before you dehydrate from lack of water. At least that's the case here in the U.S. and most other countries around the world.

    P.S. If it wasn't for political roadblocks we would have "Desal Facilities" along the shores of Africa married to pipeline delivery systems servicing those who are in desperate need.

    The planet is rapidly running out of fresh water supplies.  Glaciers which are the main source of most all rivers are vanishing.  At current rates the Colorado river will be nothing but a tiny stream in 50 years and the Ganges river will be mostly dried up.

    We need to very rapidly start developing salt water desalinization plants.  California has started to do that under the present governor.  The rest of the world is screwed.
