This will ensure that water shortage is cut down, by some extent, since unequal distribution of water normally leads to this menace.For example, regions which have large water demands should be allocated with, a relatively larger water resources, so that it would curb the whole problem.The sudden water demand in these industries, has conversely led to water shortage, since there was no enough water reserves to counter such challenges.However, the ever growing population in cities implies an increased demand for water, which puts an additional pressure on available fresh water.The steady rise of water usage has conversely increased the cost of water in a number of states, which is now being considered as a looming problem.
