Need for water conservation impacts businesses

Drayton Valley – A small town located in the central Alberta, Canada area has issued a water restriction notice on Apr. 17, 2014 by the town itself, leading to the shut down of some local businesses, emergency facilities like hospitals, healthcare services, and fire + police departments; meanwhile the residents in the community were told to monitor the amount of water they used. The battle for what is deemed as “essential service usage” and “non-essential service usage” is open for debate as more and more business owners are becoming more vocal about how this temporary inconvenience is harming their business economically. On the brighter side of things, there is supposed to be a new water treatment plant (for smarter water conservation) under construction, which is scheduled to be up, and working in the summer of 2015. It’s until then that the town officials urge the public to be patient and remain cooperative as they make attempts to correct this potable water disruption.

Save water. Save lives - Poster

“A generous person will be enriched, and one who gives water will get water.”
~The Holy Bible

According to a recent article published in The Times of Israel, various communities around the United States are signing agreements for ‘Made in Israel’ partnerships for water monitoring + conservation methods in city near you.

it just goes to show that what’s known to the western hemisphere as a “start-up nation,” can contribute to a lot of money to be made with water technology.
