What are new challenges will protect our Water resources?
There should be a higher commercial focus on demand management, than it was in the past, with common performance commitments on water usage, leakage, and drought resilience as part of the business planning process.
Personal water consumption targets, incentives, and smart metering are among the initiatives that water treatment companies should focus on. Furthermore, water firms must engage clients on climate change and population growth challenges related to increased use, as well as assist working with them individually. Smart metering is a critical instrument for providing consumption feedback and enabling individual targets to help water company-wide, water consumption reductions.
India recently had an experience with implementing water use percentage reduction targets. Targets resulted in a 33% reduction in water use (Gallons per customer per day – similar to PCC), according to the paper "Making Water Conservation a Way of Life in India."
Transitions for resilience
To enhance resilience to climate change, the larger demands of population expansion, and the need to safeguard the environment! A new approach will be required.
The security through diversity strategy has shown to be an effective technique in India.
In terms of risk and innovation, the culture of water corporations is evolving. In the future, we'll need to see examples of integrated water management. Smaller neighbourhood schemes can operate as decentralised semi-autonomous nested supplies within our cities, addressing resilience difficulties and bridging the gap between centralised and decentralised alternatives.
For draught determinations, an average leakage reduction target of 17% by the end of 2020-25 has been reported across all Indian firms.
To achieve this reduction, it will be a huge challenge in terms of technology and creativity. In India, this is a key area of joint study.
Links between customer outcomes and business planning
When formulating strategies and weighing possibilities, increased participation will be required. Options for water resources, particularly those based on demand management or integrated water management, can have a significant impact. Water corporations would need to collaborate across departments to meet performance targets.
Water resource managers in India are currently and in the future, under a lot of strain.
• Water resources are becoming increasingly scarce.
• Water resource planning and regional engagement are becoming increasingly complex.
• Transitions are necessary for reliable water supply and long-term water management (addressing flooding, water quality, etc.)
• These problems present possibilities to improve customer, environmental, and corporate outcomes.
As part of the larger social compact between water firms and customers, there will be more flexibility for creativity in planning and supplying water resources. Water is a critical medium through which we experience the effects of climate change, and recent declarations of a climate emergency must take this into consideration.
