  7. Feeling The Pressure To Reduce Leakage?
    2/19/2014

    Water is a resource that is often taken for granted. As we see the effects of climate change and population growth, the challenges we will face regarding water supply and availability will only increase. Examples of this are beginning to surface extensively in many areas of the world. In Adelaide, Australia, the Murray River has long supplied Adelaide with its source of water however the Murray River has seen extensive overuse for potable, agricultural and industrial use and now combined with changing weather patterns, Adelaide is in trouble.
