6.6 WATER INFRASTRUCTURE
RDA committees in 21 regions raised an issue about water infrastructure. Most of these RDA committees reported that better management of water resources and improved water infrastructure were needed to conserve water and ensure its future availability. Particular water infrastructure issues included out-dated measurement and delivery systems, the need to improve urban design and irrigation infrastructure and the need to develop innovative water catchment and saving technologies. It was also reported that the quality and quantity of water infrastructure was not adequate to support population growth or mining developments.
