Drinking water storage is a crucial component of water conservation, and the UK’s Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) is currently working with the industry to find a solution to help meet the growing demand for water.
In a recent update, the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) announced a new “Clean Drinking Water Capacity” initiative, which aims to support the “capacity of drinking water facilities in England”.
The scheme, which will see companies buy and maintain water tanks, has been described as the first of its kind in the world.
A spokeswoman for DEFRA, who is also responsible for water conservation and water conservation projects, said the scheme was part of a wider programme of measures aimed at meeting water demand.
“Our aim is to make drinking water available to meet the needs of the population as quickly as possible, so that people can take advantage of the many water resources we have available in the country,” she said.
“This will help ensure that all communities across the country can enjoy the best possible quality of water while meeting the needs and wants of their families.”
Defra said the initiative would help meet “increasing demand for clean drinking water” from businesses, consumers and the public.
“The new scheme will make sure we can meet the demands of all communities in the United Kingdom,” she added.
In addition to ensuring water is being delivered to the right place, the scheme will also help meet demand for a variety of other products and services, including cleaning, hygiene, household and garden products, and water treatment.
In the United States, the government has been working to reduce the number of cases of diphtheria, whooping cough and cholera, which have soared in recent years.
In January, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that the rate of the disease has dropped to the lowest level in decades, down from more than 12,000 cases in 2015.
