    per person or given product or service and or 2 reduce the rate using water only when we need it at which we use water in our daily lives either at home at work in business or in industry The reduction in water use will not only reduce the volume of polluted water but will also allow municipal sewage treatment plants to function better because they work best with more concentrated inflow In all cases the goal of water conservation is to use our water resources more efficiently Water conservation allows us to do the same task or job but with much less water Why is water Conservation important in Canada Water conservation is important for three reasons First some regions of Canada are water short due to semi arid conditions Dry summers place these areas of the country under additional stress Second other parts of the country particularly the rural areas often rely on groundwater as their sole source of supply Excessive water use or withdrawals can lower water tables in these rural areas And third in many urban areas in Canada municipal water utilities are experiencing limits on supply because of infrastructure problems either due to summer peak demands exceeding system capacities or due to older sewer and water systems that are in need of upgrading or repair In all three contexts listed above water conservation helps by putting less pressure on the existing water supply and wastewater treatment systems Recognizing the importance of water resources to all life and reducing the rate at which we use water and or the absolute amounts we use is the essence of what conservation is all about It can help us stretch our existing reserves without either to serve the needs of future growth in population or industry or to serve an existing population for a longer period of time How can Water Conservation be Implemented There are many water saving opportunities available to consumers industry and governments Generally three groups of actions are important physical measures economic measures and social measures Physical measures refer to alterations that can be made to water using equipment or processes Domestic examples include the use of low flow shower heads and water conserving toilets laundry facilities that recycle previously used water and the implementation of universal water metering in communities Industrial examples include the installation of water recycling equipment such as cooling towers and process changes that lower water use Economic measures refer to means of altering the ways in which users pay for the right to use water Examples include revisions to municipal water rates to assure full cost recovery water changes based on quantities used and implementation of volume based charges for self supplied industries Social measures refer to broad social policies and actions designed to lower water usage Examples include revisions to plumbing codes legal restrictions on water use during drought periods and campaigns to inform the public about the importance of water The last section of the Primer Water Do
