As manufacturing industries typically consume substantial amounts of water, a “closed circle” system could be introduced for high-demand factories.
In the long-term, costs related to industrial water consumption would fall.
A system of this kind requires an initial investment and skilled technical management.
Water saving can be encouraged by installing water meters in homes and offices, obliging people to pay for the quantity of water that they actually use.
This approach may lead to people being more responsible about water consumption.
Installing meters in all the required locations would demand a significant investment in terms of time and financial resources.
Up to 50 percent of drinking water resources are estimated to be lost during distribution. Investments should therefore be made to improve the water supply system and enhance management procedures in order to reduce water loss.
Improvements to the distribution system would pay for themselves over time.
This approach would require a significant up-front investment.
