Abstract

The problem of water is one of the most important problems that has become suffered from by most countries of the world, especially developing countries, as a result of the continuous increase in population and the subsequent increase in the rate of human consumption of water.  The study shows that misuse of water, continuous wasting of it obsolescence of pure water nets, broken and worn out, in addition to continuous electricity offs water are liable to affect the drinkable amount of water use. All the previously mentioned points are considered as problems that many countries in the world, including Iraq, are experiencing to get drinkable water, and this requires redoubling planned efforts in cities to provide the minimum and necessary water needs of the population in addition to reducing internal migration with its negative effects on cities, which aggravate the water problem year after year, in addition to continuing maintenance of water pipes and the treatment of break-ups that occur in some of them or switch old ones and reduce the process of draining and extravagance of water and not using it in industrial processes and preventing excesses on water transmission lines in all cities by imposing appropriate fines for it, and finally the preservation of water as a national treasure. To promote this concept, we should be investigated through holding seminars and conferences that address the problem of water and trying to remedy it within cities.
