Water is one of the most precious of the worlds natural resources, yet too little effort is made to conserve and preserve the limited available supply. Fresh water resources available for consumption vary considerably around the world. This abundance in some regions tends to create a perception of an infinite supply and that conservation is of minimal concern. These fresh water resources are being depleted every year primarily because withdrawal exceeds the rate of recharge. Recycling our water through reuse will help to preserve our finite available resources for future generations. Modular production systems can be developed utilizing recycling technology to preserve resources and enhance the quality of life, particularly for rural inhabitants of the world.
