Results of the questionnaire on water
resources
What kind of water do you usually
drink?
BOTTLED WATER 94%
OTHER 6%
94% of people
said that they
drink bottled
water.
6% of people
said that they
drink other.
According to use, most people drink bottled water because there
are not enough rivers or lakes, and you cannot drink tap water as it
does not taste good –-because it is desalinated–- and in some cases
it could even be unsafe.
Are you interested in being informed
about saving water?
NOT AT ALL 9%
YES 65%
MAYBE 26%
65% of people said that
they are interested in
saving water at home.
26% of people said that
they are maybe
interested in saving
water at home.
9% of people said that
they aren’t interested
in saving water at home.	
  
Most people said that they are water-conscious. Water is a responsibility left
up to individuals and a large group tries to save as much water as they can,
being it a limited resource on the islands, especially in Gran Canaria, as it does
not rain much. It is not a never-ending supply.
Do you believe water consumption
is a serious environmental
problem?
YES 79%
NO 15%
I DON´T CARE 3% 79% of people said
that it is a serious
environmental
problem.
15% of people said
that it is not a serious
environmental
problem.
3% of people said not
to be interested in
the problem.
Water consumption is a problem nowadays, and freshwater withdrawals have
tripled over the last 50 years. Demand for freshwater is increasing by 64 billion
cubit meters a year (1 cubic meter= 1,000 litres). Luckily, many people have
come to see this issue not only as a conservation issue, but also as a human
right’s topic.
Do you usually leave the water run
while brushing your teeth?
NEVER 76%
SOMETIMES 24%
24% of people said that
they sometimes leave the
water run while brushing
their teeth.
76% of people said that
they never leave the
water run while brushing
their teeth.
Some people say that they are not water-conscious, leaving the water
running when they brush their teeth. But, on the other hand, some say
they do not do that any longer. They see the importance of those easy
actions in order to save water.
Do you experience water shortages
in your region?
NEVER 32%
RARELY 29%
SOMETIMES 35%
USUALLY 3%
There are water shortages in the Canary Islands for different reasons such as
lack of rain or very high temperatures in summer continuing till winter. Water
availability is then further limited if the desalination plants do not work
properly, although that does not usually happen. But, in general, water
shortages are not common these days.
29% of people said that
they rarely experience
them.
3% of people said that they
usually experience them.
32% of people said that
they never experience them.
35% of people said that
they sometimes experience
them.
What kind of water system do you have?
CENTRAL WATER 88%
OTHER 12% 88% of people said
that they have a
central water
system.
12% of people said
that they have
another non
specified water
system.
Most people have a central water system --for example if
they live in buildings– belonging to a semi-public company
called EMALSA or, in the cases of some other isolated
houses, there could be wells.
How would you rate the quality of
water in your area?
EXCELLENT 9%
GOOD 32%
SATISFACTORY 41%
POOR 18%
9% of people said that the
quality of water in their
region is excellent.
32% of people said that the
quality of water in their
region is good.
41% of people said that the
quality of water in their
region is satisfactory.
18% of people said that the
quality of water in their
region is poor.
	
  	
  The results show that the majority of people believe
that the water quality in their area is good or are
satisfied with it. Only a small part thinks that it is
excellent. Those who think that it is poor goes up to
18%. But, despite the results, most of us drink bottled
water.
How often do you have a bath or a
shower?
MORE 88%
3–4 TIMES A WEEK 9%OTHER 3% 3% of people said
that 1-2 times a week
they have a bath or a
shower.
9% of people said
that 3-4 times a
week they have a
bath or a shower.
88% of people said
that they have a bath
or shower more
often.From the results we can see that most of the
people take a bath or shower 3-4 times a week or
more often. A big quantity of water is necessary
to perform this task.
What is your family’s attitude
towards saving water?
WE OFTEN TALK
ABOUT IT 21%
WE TALK ABOUT IT FROM
TIME TO TIME 44%
WE DON´T
MENTION IT
29%
OTHER 6%
21% people said that they
often talk about this
topic.
44% people said that
they talk about this topic
from time to time.
29% people said that
they do not discuss about
this topic.
6% people said other.
As we can see, the majority of people say that they mention the problem of
saving water in their family sometimes. Mainly they use it without worrying
about its waste. According to us, it is necessary for people to be informed about
saving water and become conscious of it.
Try to estimate your personal
monthly water consumption
LESS THAN
1000 LITRES
15%
1000 – 2000
LITRES 68%
2000 – 3000
LITRES 12%
MORE 6%
12 % of people use about
2000-3000 litres of
water every month.
68 % of people use about
1000-2000 litres of water
every month.
6 % of people use more
than 2,000-3,000 litres of
water every month.
15 % of people use less
than 1,000 litres of water
every month.
As we can see, the majority of people use about
1000-2000 litres of water every month. What
emerges from our research is that the results are
not bad, although they can be improved with people
becoming more conscious of its value for the island
and for the world.
	
  
That is all

  • 1. Results of the questionnaire on water resources
  • 2. What kind of water do you usually drink? BOTTLED WATER 94% OTHER 6% 94% of people said that they drink bottled water. 6% of people said that they drink other. According to use, most people drink bottled water because there are not enough rivers or lakes, and you cannot drink tap water as it does not taste good –-because it is desalinated–- and in some cases it could even be unsafe.

Water is a responsibility left up to individuals and a large group tries to save as much water as they can, being it a limited resource on the islands, especially in Gran Canaria, as it does not rain much. It is not a never-ending supply.

Water consumption is a problem nowadays, and freshwater withdrawals have tripled over the last 50 years. Demand for freshwater is increasing by 64 billion cubit meters a year (1 cubic meter= 1,000 litres). Luckily, many people have come to see this issue not only as a conservation issue, but also as a human right’s topic.

They see the importance of those easy actions in order to save water.

NEVER 32% RARELY 29% SOMETIMES 35% USUALLY 3% There are water shortages in the Canary Islands for different reasons such as lack of rain or very high temperatures in summer continuing till winter.

Only a small part thinks that it is excellent. Those who think that it is poor goes up to 18%. But, despite the results, most of us drink bottled water.

A big quantity of water is necessary to perform this task.
  • 10. What is your family’s attitude towards saving water? WE OFTEN TALK ABOUT IT 21% WE TALK ABOUT IT FROM TIME TO TIME 44% WE DON´T MENTION IT 29% OTHER 6% 21% people said that they often talk about this topic. 44% people said that they talk about this topic from time to time. 29% people said that they do not discuss about this topic. 6% people said other. As we can see, the majority of people say that they mention the problem of saving water in their family sometimes. Mainly they use it without worrying about its waste. According to us, it is necessary for people to be informed about saving water and become conscious of it.
  • 11. Try to estimate your personal monthly water consumption LESS THAN 1000 LITRES 15% 1000 – 2000 LITRES 68% 2000 – 3000 LITRES 12% MORE 6% 12 % of people use about 2000-3000 litres of water every month. 68 % of people use about 1000-2000 litres of water every month. 6 % of people use more than 2,000-3,000 litres of water every month. 15 % of people use less than 1,000 litres of water every month. As we can see, the majority of people use about 1000-2000 litres of water every month. What emerges from our research is that the results are not bad, although they can be improved with people becoming more conscious of its value for the island and for the world.
