ABSTRACT
The article reports that the government of Great Britain has set a target for per capita domestic water use of 130 litres a day by 2030. The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) revealed in its "Future Water" report that new technology could mean that 120 litres was achievable. Defra said it would consider whether that should be extended to place a water efficiency obligation on the industry similar to energy companies' energy efficiency commitment.
