Although it appears that countries and continents cover most the Earth’s surface, the oceans, rivers and tributaries cover approximately 70% of the surface. Nevertheless, the news agencies are always talking about a lack of sufficient drinking water available around the world. This is because less than 1% of the water in the world is ready for human consumption. Water management services can help by organizing water meter installations so that customers understand how much water they are using and how much is being wasted.
Just 1% Of the World’s Water Is Ready to Drink
That 1% is not only used to drink and shower at home. It will also be used by commercial and industrial businesses, for growing and agriculture around the globe and for a variety of environmental needs.
As the world population, has rapidly increased, so has the need for more drinking water. In 1900 there were just 1.6 billion people in the world. By 1950 this had increased to 2.5 billion, reaching 7 billion in 2016. The projection is that the world population will reach 9.5 billion by the year 2050. They are all going to require an adequate supply of drinking water.
A Family Home Consumes 400 Gallons of Water Every Day
Around 50% of water supplied publicly across the US is used in homes. The average family of four can easily use 400 gallons of water, every single day of the year. While some areas of the world have no natural drinking water supply, some continents are failing to supply adequate facilities to many countries, even the US is suffering where demand is outstripping supply.
40 states across the US expect to facilitate water shortages during the next 10 years, unless changes are implemented, quickly.
Where water management services undertake to manage billing services and data management, as well as the undertaking of water meter installations, greater control can be provided for the use of water. Utility companies can also receive proper payment for your water usage, which guarantees reinvestment for future requirements.
Water management services provide customers with easy access and various methods of payment to make the process of dealing with this utility as easy as possible.
The world cannot continue overusing its water facilities, so it is necessary for forward thinking companies to find ways to enhance our environment and invest in new technology to improve water conservation and treatment solutions.
