In the same speed water gets more valuable, water system quality, roof rain water storage and waste water recycling will grow. Water as being the oil of the 21st century will be less spilled year after year. This will require large renovations of the water infrastructure, which leaks globally average approximately 10% out of the clean sweet water pipes. Maybe preventing water spill will also lead to more domestic roof water storage systems in houses/companies. This is required by legislation in each new building in both Germany and Belgium. And maybe also to more domestic waste water systems in each house/company (required by legislation in rural Sweden).
