Climate change is very soon going to challenge the reliability of water supplies in various areas. Changes in patterns of precipitation and reduced snowpack are some of the changes which constantly affect the quality as well as quantity of water available to Peoples of United States.
Water cycles constantly provide a complete setup to run various life activities on our planet or setting the stage for all life to exist. The water cycle is dynamic and naturally variable, and societies and ecosystems are accustomed to functioning within this variability. Climate change alters the water cycle in multiple ways over different time scales and geographic areas, presenting unfamiliar risks and opportunities.
The most common risk is towards water borne diseases. According to some survey in United State, Contaminated water can cause many types of diarrheal diseases, including Cholera, and other serious illnesses such as Guinea worm disease, Typhoid, and Dysentery. Water related diseases cause 3.4 million deaths each year.
