Water conservation Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
Water conservation encompasses the policies, strategies and activities made to manage fresh water as a sustainable resource, to protect the water environment, and to meet current and future human demand. Population, household size, and growth and affluence all affect how much water is used. Factors such as climate change will increase pressures on natural water resources especially in manufacturing and agricultural irrigation.

Water conservation Definition from Society & Culture Dictionaries & Glossaries
Environmental Engineering (English ver.)
The physical control, protection, management, and use of water resources in such a way as to maintain crop, grazing, and forest lands, vegetative cover, wildlife, and wildlife habitat for maximum sustained benefits to people, agriculture, industry, commerce, and other segments of the national economy. Water conservation measures result in a reduction in applied water due to more efficient water use such as the implementation of Best Management Practices (BMP): Urban Water Use, or Efficient Water Management Practices (EWMP): Agricultural Water Use. The extent to which these actions actually create a savings in water supply depends on how they affect new water use and depletion.
