Water conservation has become increasingly important in the UK as demand for water has increased and shortfalls in supply have occurred. There is growing public awareness of the scarcity of water in some areas of the UK and of its economic value. The benefits of conserving water include: maintaining the availability of the water supply during drought periods; reduced pumping and treatment costs (with associated energy savings); wastewater reduction, protection of the environment and the possible reduction in costs for the consumer. 6 pages.
