One of the most richest country in the world, Saudi Arabia has no permanent water resource such as river, lake or waterfall.
However, in spite of the ever increasing water demand, they are still able to meet all the water needs of their citizens.
New techniques were invented by the Ministry of Water and Power to meet the demand of water.
In this technique, water is stored underground with the help of aquifers.
The government started working on aquifers in 1970 and since then lakhs of aquifers have been constructed which provide water for both urban as well agricultural purposes.
Recycling of water is also done on a very big scale in Saudi Arabia. The government ensures that 40% of used water is again provided for household chores in urban areas after recycling.
Now that’s something we need to learn from. Isn’t it?
