3.1 Urban water supply system

Supporting Information

The water distribution store is comprised of an:

  • urban potable water supply system
  • urban wastewater system
  • urban recycled water supply system.

Water stored in components such as pipes, tanks and channels in these systems could not be quantified with data that were complete, neutral and free from material error. Therefore they have not been included in the Water accounting statements. The impact of this omission is not considered material on the water balance of the urban water store.
