Why Conserve Water?
It is an important question to begin with. Why should we worry about water in Ireland? Doesn’t it rain enough all year round to supply us with enough water to use?
While the Dublin Region is fortunate in having a number of water sources, this water must be treated at considerable cost and transported through over 8,000 km of watermains before it gets to our taps.
It therefore makes sense that this treated water is not wasted through leaking watermains or excessive consumption.
Consequently, water conservation is a very important issue and there are a number of ways conservation can be achieved.
- Repairing leaks both in public and private mains.
- Rehabilitation of old section of water pipes.
- Managing water pressure.
- Reduction in consumption by domestic and commercial. Many homes and businesses can achieve savings of between 20-50%.
