Water Cycle

CATCHMENT

It consists in finding deep underground resources and extracting sea water for its desalination.

TREATMENT

It is the physical-chemical treatment of water for human uses and economic activities.

DISTRIBUTION

Water distribution via networks allows consumers to have access to drinking water.

SANITATION AND WASTEWATER TREATMENT

Wastewater treatment is the process that guarantees its return to the water cycle without any environmental impact. Water reuse is made possible by this technology.

Water footprint

The water footprint measures the volume of freshwater used to produce goods and services:

Tips for saving water

In homes

  • Take a shower instead of a bath
  • Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth or shaving
  • Fix dripping or leaking taps
  • Use household wash water
  • Take advantage of the rainwater for garden irrigation
  • Water the garden in the early hours or at dusk
  • Use a bucket instead of a hose when washing your car
  • Wash only full loads in your appliances

In the industry

  • Install meters in the areas with the highest consumption
  • Audit water usage in the processes that consume the most water
  • Use low-flow, high- pressure cleaning system
  • Install self-closing valves
  • Implement closed circuit
  • Reuse water and use other alternative sources of water
  • Automatic pumping
  • Clean completely empty tanks and accumulators

In agriculture

  • Plan irrigation according to the actual demands of each crop using tensiometers
  • Know each agro-climatic zone
  • Modernize the irrigation system with sprinkler or drip irrigation
  • Water the garden in the early hours or at dusk
  • Replace open channels with closed conduits
  • Automatic pumping
  • Lid ponds and reservoirs to reduce evaporation
  • Maintenance and control of irrigation networks
  • Implement precision irrigation systems

In hotels

  • Use of pearlizers, low-flow showerheads and dual flush toilets in rooms
  • Pressure reducing systems and low water consuming equipment in kitchens
  • Water the garden in the early hours or at dusk
  • Automatic pumping
  • Water reuse in landscaped areas
  • Policy information for sheets and towels
  • Use of recycled water for cleaning tasks
  • Avoid air conditioning open systems
  • Maintenance and control of primary distribution networks
