Solving for water security at the source

Solving for water security at the source


Andrea Erickson wrote an excellent blog on Tuesday for the World Bank entitles “Solving for Water Security at the Source”.

Working in partnership with land owners and environmental groups to improve the raw water quality and in turn make Treatment more cost effective is a very effective and sustainable strategy. In the UK we call the process Strategic Catchment Management Plans (SCaMP).

SCaMP is a move away from the asset and technology heavy direction the water industry has been traveling in for the past couple of decades and I think (hope) we’ll see many other water authorities at least consider similar options in future before going for another big capital scheme.
