The author argues that water transfer is a better solution to water scarcity in Great Britain. She says contracts to provide water between one firm to another have an important role to play in ensuring water supply. She asserts that swapping supplies can be invaluable for the buyer and profitable for the seller. Water transfers will help companies manage their water supply.
