Urban Water

Currently, individuals are paying what I believe to be unnecessary fees to remove their home from the current council water network. I believe this is unnecessary as these individuals pay out of pocket fees in order to remove themselves from this system in the first place.

The reuse of stormwater can have huge positive impacts on the local community as well as the householder, and there is clear proof that homes can be effectively removed from council supply whilst still maintaining quality of life.

Now must also consider the use of desalination plants and the energy required to sustain these practices. How can we offset these issues? Is a reduction in water use enough? Should we switch to solar energy instead to fund these plants?

We must then look further, into water sensitive urban design, water sensitive cities and more appropriate water use policy.
