Imagine a day when the taps ran dry: Mr. Townsman would have found life intolerable. He could not brush his teeth, have his shave or could he have his bath in the morning. After lunch, he would have had a very difficult time trying to wash up. He might have used cloth to wipe his crockery. He could not wash his car. At the end of the day, however, our Mr. Townsman would have realized that water is precious and he should not be a water-waster.
Water is also important for growth of plants. Water coming through irrigation or rain is responsible for growing all kinds of plants and vegetation that exists on this planet. It is known that without water, life on earth would never have begun.
Water is essential for the existence of plant and animal life
Besides being essential for the proper functioning of the human body, water promotes life in many other ways. Without it, we can’t grow crops, raise animals, wash food or maintain a good hygiene.
