Water Crisis creates a demand for alternative water source in many events of crisis situations around the world. So, how can we deal with this circumstance?
The trick to guarantee a suitable answer to a crisis is a fantastic preparation.
If you do it, you’ll have the ability to handle yourself when a catastrophe happens, as a result of natural disaster or another situation, until the government will get to you.
However, the water utilities together with the municipal authorities have the obligation to supply water in a water crisis. These utilities plan and implement the water supplement in a crisis in different ways, at any time, anywhere and in each scenario so that every individual will have the sufficient quantity of water to survive.
The National Water Authority of Israel, through its water security unit, is the regulator that educates these organizations how to be ready to water crisis and oversee them by exercising and periodic inspections. It needs to be noted that Israel is thought to be the world leader in the area of water (research, development, animal exterminator and production) and is a role model around the world, due to its preparations for earthquake, war situations, terror acts and natural or manmade catastrophes.
The preparations of the water utilities are based on a complete plan of water supply in an assortment of scenarios. This plan includes three phases: preparation, advice and handling the crisis. The principles for AWS relies on forming processes, embracing new technologies that help to reduce water emergency, equipping with water distribution means (tankers, water fountains etc.) and teaching and exercising the work force appointed to the assignment both from the management level and the area level.
There’s a vital importance that the provider will be prepared based on the particular structure of its own water system, its physical and population surface that it serves at. There’s a major difference between a hill region, sparsely populated and a metropolis that’s dense and full of skyscrapers. A small city in the periphery isn’t like a major city that occupies hundreds of thousands of employees, who do not actually reside in it. A city which its principal provider is the national water provider will be treated differently in a town with water supply from local wells. The essence of the physical surface has an influence on the way in which the water will be provided in crisis, on the chances of getting assistance from neighboring towns, available water resources and much more. Each surface has its own challenges which should find the proper and comprehensive answers. I will examine these challenges on another report.
In conclusion- the state of Israel is doing a lot to make sure its capacity to supply water in a crisis and sets a high standard. Nonetheless it is the responsibility of every resident to be certain he has the sufficient quantity of water in the home so he can survive by himself in a crisis.
