Clean water has been regarded as an unlimited resource for many years, and little consideration has been given to the cautious, conservative use of water. However, the problems and impacts associated with water consumption are stimulating interest in water conservation. Alleviating overloads to water supply and sewage treatment facilities, reducing operational requirements and costs, as well as rendering innovative technologies more feasible are being recognized as potential benefits of reducing water demands and wastewater loads.
