This paper examines the current status of water resource management and conservation in China, along with strategies to address the water resource crisis. Given the current situation, the paper highlights issues such as incomplete legal mechanisms, limited environmental awareness among enterprises, and insufficient government investment. To address these challenges, the paper proposes a series of strategies, including improving the ecological environment, enhancing production techniques, strengthening management systems, rationalizing water resource allocation, and implementing water-saving measures in both industrial and agricultural production. These strategies serve to achieve sustainable water resource management, reduce water pollution, and effectively tackle the pressing water resource issues faced in China currently.
