Extracts from the white paper

Increasing population, agricultural demand and inefficient use continues to put more pressure on the existing water infrastructure. And the cost of maintaining and upgrading the infrastructure continues to rise.
A simple parallel with the current scenario of water usage can be presented with use of petrol. If motorists paid a fixed annual charge for fuel, irrespective of how much they used, most drivers would drive big engine cars, roads would be more congested and car makers wouldn’t even consider making fuel-efficient vehicles.
