OCTOMK w Tw o of Water in Main Problem Isnt tiatlability By HELEN B SHAFFER GlobeGaxette Editorial Research Bureau i Rapid popu lation growth and rapid expan sion of industrial activity are confronting the country with an increasingly serious problem of water supply Numerous commissions arid committees have looked into the question in the past dozen years Now a special Senate undertaking a new and exhaustiveinquiry as a basis for legislation aimed to remove the danger of critical shortages Concern over water supply already has led to fed eral sponsorship of a program to develop economically practi cal methods of converting salt water and brackish water into fresh water THE WATER problem is not so much a question of supply us of availability There is no national water shortage now In fact the country consumes only about onetenth of the an nual average precipitation The question is to maintain ade quate supplies where and when they are needed And that is so big a question that Secretary of the InteriorFred A Sea ton sa within thenext two decades Existing and impending wa ter shortages result directly from spiraling demand Twice as many people 1iveih the United States now as in 1900 and the doubled population con sumes four times as much wa ter Various things account for the increase in per capita use Higher living standards indus trial expansion extension of ir rigation development of1 hydro electric power By 1955 the Geological Survey estimates the country was consuming 240 billion gallons of water a the equivalent of gallons for every man woman and child Population and industry al ways have tended to grow where water is abundant AREAS OF WATER shortage or potential shortage are not limited to arid sections of the West or Southwest Parts of the country described by the Geo logical Survey as having seri ous water supply problems in clude the Delaware and Hudson River basins Savannah and the Rio Grande Valley among others The Delaware and Hudson region is humid and well watered but water demands are enormous Heavy pumping of underground water in the neighborhood of Savan nah has substantially lowered water levels there The Rio Grande Valleyis definitely short of water for The water supply situations could be improved through con servation and more extensive reuse of existing supplies Stor age and regulated release of billions of gallons of water that now flow unutilized into the oceans is one potential source of added supply Avail ablev wa ter could be increased also by expansion of pollution abate ment facilities to permit wider reuse of water now used in itially in industrial operations MANY OF MANS w a t r problems would be solved if he could slake his thirst from the unlimited ocean supplies Al though techniques for desalting sea water have been known for centuries its still pretty much a matter of water water nor any drop to Plants for converting salt or brackish water i n t o fresh water have been put into operation at a few places in California the Persian Gulf the West Indies and elsewhere Costs are so high however that in most cases it is cheap er to bring in fresh water from considerable distance
