At the farm level, water management should be made compulsory.Farmers should reduce their dependence on ground water.Wars will emerge and will perhaps lead to the third World War which will be fought for water and food.Due to water scarcity, farmers tend to pull out more water from the ground thereby depleting the ground water resources and destroying the water table.It directly influences the weather and amount of potable water thereby causing water scarcity and crop failures which eventually leads to food shortages.

In conclusion, recovery of the lake ecosystem should be facilitated not only naturally but through the intervention of humans to make restoration more abrupt and systematic.Aside from serving as homes of different living species, some lakes also function as “water basins” where they can also be used as source of water for human communities which is essential for their survival.After all, humans benefit much from the lake ecosystem just as the living creatures which depend on it.Resulting from this man-made acts, every time rainy weather comes, this causes soil erosion then flooding in the surrounding area because there are no more trees and plants which hold the water from flowing freely which may damage not only the biotic but the abiot...
