  4. 4. Water Saving Methods There are many ways of saving water Read through the information about different methods Put into 3 categories.  Domestic  Industrial  Agricultural Check them and stick them into your books under the correct headings

  7. 7. Case Study: Walkers Crisps Walkers Crisps have reduced its usage by 50% This is saving over 700,000,000 litres a year They did this by:-  Installing 30 water meters at their factories, allowing them to monitor where and when water was being used  They recycle the water from one part of the production, rather than wasting it  They educated their staff about using water sensibly  They assigned ‘water champions’ and ‘leak busters’ to each shift. It was VERY successful!
