Water Neutrality for Sustainable Developments
Conservation professionals and sustainability technologists have been discussing carbon neutrality for a while. Now the use of water is increasingly becoming an important environmental issue, in terms of quality and quantity available for new developments.
The term “Water Neutrality” was coined to indicate the need to reduce the overall water consumption and demand on our natural water resource.
Water Neutrality in terms of developments is explained as, “for every new development, the predicted increase in total water demand in the region due to the development should be offset by reducing demand in the existing community” (Environment Agency, 2009).
