It has been argued that new approaches need to be considered in order to cater for additional demand due to increasing population, changing climate, limited resource availability and a desire to protect ecosystems and build more livable cities. It has therefore been argued that providing additional capacity by using only conventional centralized systems is not economically or environmentally the best option. The use of decentralized water supply options such as rainwater tanks; storm water harvesting and reuse; and localized wastewater tr..
