He is interested to continue his understanding on environmental issues and water. Water is life sustaining liquid. It is one of the most important natural resources which is essential for the existence of living organisms. Water is the most widely distributed key resource to meet the basic needs of a growing population, social and economic ambitions, demanding agriculture, expanding urbanisation, increasing industrialisation and many other causes.

These measures are generally known as soil conservation or soil and water conservation (SWC), especially when related to aspects like erosion, soil-moisture problems and soil fertility. More broadly applicable are names such as land husbandry or sustainable land management.

Soil survey is a scientific inventory of one of our most basic and important natural resources—the soil. Soil surveys provide the basic information needed to manage soil sustainably. They also provide information needed to protect water quality, wetlands, and.

Conservation of soil and water resources is important for sustainability of agriculture and environment. Soil and water resources are under immense pressure due to.

target. In addition to improving soil fertility, water harvesting, enhancing the soil-water retention capacity and reducing soil erosion are measures that could significantly improve agricultural productivity in rainfed marginal environments. Thus, soil and water conservation practices are becoming increasingly important in the arid and semi-arid.

The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), in cooperation with its partners, has the leadership role for conducting soil surveys on private lands across the country.

The Massachusetts NRCS soils program is responsible for providing technical soil services—assisting government agencies and private citizens in understanding and applying. What is water conservation.

This is a way of tapping as much water as possible and storing it in tanks or reservoirs. It allows water to sink into the soil increasing soil moisture levels. It ensures a protective cover of vegetation on the soil surface, slowing down the flow of running water and spreads the water over a large area.

Soil conservation stores more of the runoff from excess rainfall in the reservoir of the soil for subsequent crop use; and this much water is kept out of streams, thereby contributing to flood reduction.

Today these techniques of soil and water conservation are being prac- ticed in many countries with much benefit to great numbers of people. Retaining Soil Moisture in the American Southwest is a culmination of the author's extensive interest in soil and water interactions, soil remediation, land application of treated wastes, conservation, air, soil, and water quality issues, and an overall appreciation for improvement for the quality of life.

There are always strong links between measures for soil conservation and measures for water conservation, and this applies equally in semi-arid areas. Many measures are directed primarily to one or the other, but most contain an element of both.

India has 16% of the world's population and only 4% of the world's water resources, which are depleting rapidly. The demand for water is expected to grow from 40 billion cubic metres (bcm.

The MWRA received MADEP grant funds to expand its community-based water conservation program during calendar year Two additional local projects were implemented to further promote drinking water conservation, reduce water usage and reduce water loss, including: low-flow toilet retrofit rebates and pilot community water audits.

Soil quality is an integral part of water conservation. Well-developed soil allows irrigation water and rain to infiltrate rather than run off; it also has the capacity to retain the water that soaks in. Plant roots penetrate easily and deeply in quality soil and can reach water reserves held low in the soil profile.

All of these attributes result in a reduced need for landscape irrigation. USE LOW-WATER PLANTS. There are many varieties of low water use plants that can withstand dry summers, and actually thrive in drier soil. Here are a few of them: 32 Low-Water Plants Remember: All newly planted trees, shrubs and flowers intially need water to get established.

But once established, drought tolerant plantings can survive without.Water Splash (PDF): This is a full-length booklet that includes information and activities to help parents and teachers explain water conservation to kids.
