Increased water use will create a major stress on water available for individuals and the entire global ecosystem. Unless our projected rapid increase in population is prevented through educational awareness, certain practices and new technologies should be implemented with a heavier emphasis to avoid basic environmental injustices. If about 40% of fresh water in the United States is unfit for recreational or drinking use because of various pollutants, what could possibly be occurring in undeveloped locations that do not have basic regulations? (Pimentel et al 2004).

General water management practices are becoming a prevalent concern as levels of pollution have increased and the global population continues to grow. The lack of inadequate treatment for human wastes and improperly managed industrial and agricultural wastes are the most significant sources of pollution. The High-level Panel on the Post-2015 Development Agenda has indicated that 2 billion people do not have access to safe water (UN, 2013). The number of people whose right to water is not satisfied is even greater, probably in the order of 3.5 billion (Onda et al., 2012).
