Student inquiry questions

Case study for students: Meeting demand for drinking water.
  • What challenges do local authorities face in meeting demand for drinking water? What factors are under their control? What factors are beyond their control?
  • Are the challenges the same everywhere? If not, which might differ?
  • What strategies can you think of to reduce demand for, or improve the supply of, drinking water? (You may have ideas beyond those in the case study.) Which strategies are most sustainable?
  • What do you think your local authority should be doing to manage your water supply?
