10 Lines on Water: Water is one of the most vital life-supporting substances on Earth. All living organisms require water to survive. Every life form on Earth, right from small microorganisms to giant elephants need water for their normal functioning and well being. Almost 71% of the Earth is covered by water alone. In this constitution, the oceans make up nearly 96.5% of the available water. Hence, most of the water around us is not potable or fit for drinking purposes.
Ten Lines on Water
Below we have provided ten lines on Water in English, written in easy and simple words for class 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 school students.
- There is no life on Earth without the most indispensable element –water.
- Water is obtained from many resources like lakes, dams, rivers, wells; underground water bodies and most importantly rain.
- Water is used for domestic purposes like drinking, cooking, cleaning and for agricultural and industrial purposes too.
- Apart from humans, plants and animals also need water to survive.
- Clean drinking water is very scarce on Earth as most of the water is found in oceans that are unfit for consumption.
- Man has contaminated water bodies with sewage, dirt, chemicals and industrial wastes causing pollution.
- Water pollution leads to waterborne diseases like cholera and typhoid, which could be fatal to life.
- Cutting down trees, overuse of water and wasting clean water has led to a scarcity of good drinking water, so we must conserve water.
- Water Day is celebrated on March 22nd every year.
- Water is the most precious natural resource available on Earth, and all life forms need water for their survival and growth.
- Water is a boon to all life forms on Earth and is considered one of the primary substances among the five essential elements that support life.
- Water is required by all living organisms including humans, animals, birds and plants for respiration, digestion, metabolism and growth.
- In the absence of water, plants cannot grow, and agricultural irrigation systems cannot function properly, leading to sparse vegetation.
- Natural water is tasteless and colourless, but the water found in the seas is very salty due to its high saline composition.
- Water should be filtered and boiled well before it is used for drinking, so it does not carry any germs that can cause waterborne diseases like diarrhoea, typhoid and cholera.
- We should never allow water to contaminate in one place as it acts as a breeding ground for mosquitoes and germs that cause diseases.
- Water is used for generation of electricity in thermal power units and other industrial establishments as a cooling agent.
- Many industries and factories let out their chemicals into nearby water sources and some people clean and wash their clothes, utensils and animals in water resources, thereby polluting them.
- The scarcity of good drinking water has caused global concern, and therefore all of us have to save and conserve water by limited usage and remembering that every drop of water matters.
- The Central pollution control board has taken drastic steps to clean almost 18 major rivers of India and make clean and freshwater available for all life forms and also for our future generations.
- All living organisms from whales to tiny creatures need fresh water for their survival, growth, respiration, digestion, metabolism and functioning properly.
- An adult human consists of almost 60% of water, and cells do not function properly if there is inadequate availability of water in the body.
- Essential water resources include lakes, rivers, dams, glaciers, ponds, water absorbed in the soil, under rocks and underground water sources.
- Water is very significant to humans as it is needed for drinking, bathing, cooking, cleaning, washing, watering plants, irrigational systems, industrial components, thermal power plants for generating electricity and so on.
- Water available for consumption is only around 3% on Earth; hence we shouldn’t wastewater and conserve every drop and limit usage to save them through rainwater harvesting techniques.
- Water is also found in other forms of matter, as in the gaseous state like water vapour, which forms clouds and when condensed, creates a downpour in the way of rain popularly called the water cycle.
- Water exists in all three states of matter, namely, in the solid-state as ice, in the liquid state as water and the gaseous state as water vapour and the chemical composition of water is H2O.
- We have been exploiting water resources on Earth and causing contamination and pollution, which has led to fatal diseases like cholera, typhoid, Hepatitis A and many more.
- Water Day is celebrated every year on March 22nd since 1993 to spread awareness on the need to conserve fresh water and prevent our water bodies from getting contaminated with garbage, chemicals and industrial effluents.
- The pollution control board has been actively engaged in keeping our water resources clean and has stepped up measures to tackle the global water crisis through sustainable water management systems.
Water resources include lakes, rivers, ice caps, and glaciers, underground and retained in the soil. Water has numerous uses for human, animal and plant life. We should save and conserve water for utilization by all living forms. Water pollution is a burning issue, and methods to curb water contamination are taken up by the government. Waterborne diseases could cause fatal injuries to life forms; hence we must ensure the availability of fresh, functional and clean drinking water to all life forms.
