Hello Chloe, It is well known that water companies have fewer and fewer opportunities to obtain clean drinking water.
Environmental studies show that water companies do not attempt to supply drinking water to the entire country because some regions are difficult to access. The costs of supplying water have recently increased in Colombia and they will continue to increase in the coming years.
In addition, studies examining environmental recovery after disturbance appear to show that recovery rates are slow, and no cases revealed an impacted site returning to pre-disturbance conditions for all parameters.
Studies show that the facilities that perceive environmental regulations as being stringent tend to have a higher environmental performance.
Disturbances, intended to aid both the supply of drinking water and water for environmental preservation, show that reclaimed water and water reuse are determining factors in raising the value of water.
