i) Do not keep the taps running,  while shaving, washing etc. regularly check the pipes for leakage.
ii) Fill as much water in the washing machine as needed,
iii) Close taps tightly after use,

Water is said to be polluted when it becomes dirty due to various wastes thrown in water bodies. It leads to death of various marine organisms. It occurs because we throw wastes in water bodies , industries discharge their waste in it and many more reasons are there. We can see now Ganga is also very much polluted. It is a sacred river but then also it is very much polluted. Due to water pollution many peoples are dyeing. Many skin diseases are occurring and many more diseases are occurring due to this. Water which is very useful to us becomes very harmful after it becomes polluted. So from now we should not pollute water and try to conserve water
