Water and Sewage

North Americans continue to use far more water per capita than citizens of other nations, with Canadian residents using more than double the world average of water on a per capita annual basis (OECD). Water consumption and treatment for residential, commercial and industrial use increases the demand for energy, and in turn produces an increase in green-house gas emissions. Governments can see the opportunity to transition to more sustainable strategies as the cost for maintaining and replacing aging infrastructure increases. This can include water conservation and management programs and policies, alternative sewage treatment, and wastewater reclamation practices.
