Drip irrigation, xeriscape, desalination, water recycling, personal water conservation, and the change of household appliances are all techniques that would have a positive effect on California’s drought. Because of the constantly growing population, the demand for water is constantly growing. To make sure that this water crisis doesn’t become vital, Californian’s should think it is their duty to help improve the situation. These improvements can be made in farmers, landscapers, and the everyday citizen.
A Case Study on Water Demand Management Introduction Over the years, an enormous growth in population, agriculture and industries are creating an immense pressure on water resources. The traditional methods of urban water systems are now altered to sustainable urban water management (SUWM). This case study drives the difference between conventional and water sensitive urban development. Water Sensitive City Urban water systems are currently facing the challenges such as climate change, which includes water scarcities, high intensity rainfall and high radiation waves, which gives rise to storm water runoff. A modern way of water sensitive urban development (WSUD) has been put into practise to mitigate the effects of storm water runoff (van de Meene, Brown, & Farrelly, 2011).
Dry season prompted numerous difficult issues. Dry spell can significantly influence the political and monetary component. There are numerous approaches to tackle the water issues in California. California isn 't the main nation that was confronting water issues. We ought to utilize water carefully later on to improve the world a spot.

With the disposal of solid waste from process, manufacturing and its waste pose considerable challenges for many organizations. Since, landfilling has become limited, and with the cost of waste disposal continuing to rise, they needed alternative measures. One solution for reducing waste volume would benefit the environment, and could lower our operating costs.
Meanwhile, it also affects the local economy. ‘In adapting to climate change, cities can choose either grey or green infrastructure.’ Says Professor Stuart Gaffin (Elisabeth Braw, 2013). In New York, they chose to use Green City, including living roof and street planting. Such series of measures will collect more rainwater, slow down the flood damage to the city, while building a multi- functional park that can be used to store water when storms and floods come. Climate change also has a immense impact on energy use, while the greenhouse effect may reduce heating demand in the winter, the year-on- year growth will increase the use of air conditioning in the summer, at the same time, it will also increase the extra greenhouse gas emissions.
Environmental DSP’s sustainability report emphasizes its impacts on the society. It highlights impacts related to materials, energy water, products and services, compliance, emissions, effluence, and waste.

There must be consistent plans to reduce their global water foot prints.
With continuous socio-economical issues, the housing shortage in Indonesia is likely to increase. In response to this, the government has introduced a self-housing improvement program for squatter settlements located in the river basins of Yogyakarta, an area prone to frequent flooding (Bredenoord, Van Lindert & Smets 2014). Self-help housing has allowed residents the opportunity to improve their housing condition and standard of living, however has simultaneously contributed to the rapid growth of urbanisation. Furthermore, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has emphasised that the health implication of housing is 'intimately related to health as poor housing conditions provide defences ' (Terwari 1991 cited in Ray 2002, p. 1). Squatter settlements are usually areas of socio-economic, environmental and health issues.
Desalination 3. OTEC (Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion) Water Recycling Water recycling here on Oahu is an important part of ensuring a sustainable water supply for future generations. Through the natural water cycle, the earth has recycled and reused water for millions of years. Water recycling generally refers to projects that use technology to speed up these natural processes. Recycled water can reduce much of Oahu’s aquifer water demands, as long as it is adequately treated to ensure water quality appropriate for the use.

Also, households must have money to purchase sprinkler systems and water their gardens. If these attitudes do not change within the household, how can we expect a change of water consumption outside of the household in businesses? CONCLUSION - 300 There is good reason for concern over water sustainability in Western Australia. Water is connected to all spheres of sustainability: environmental, social and economic.
In this essay I will use cause and consequence arguments to defend my stance on the drought and convince you that Californians affect the Californian environment and it will take much change on our part to remedy the crisis of drought. Population of California is growing, which means we are using more water. The population in California is rapidly increasing and the demand for water will follow this trend. I believe that even with water conservation, we will not be able to overcome this crisis because of how many more individuals will need it with the increase of population we will see and is already trending over time. We all have different uses for our water; to cook food, take showers, brush our teeth, flush away waste, and maintain our lawns.
