Water Management

Water management

Life is not possible without a sufficient supply of clean water. Water bodies provide people with drinking water and the industry with water, for example to manufacture goods. Water bodies are habitats for many plants and animals, thus contributing to biodiversity conservation. That is why we need to reconcile water conservation and use as much as possible.
