Whereas water engineers have traditionally focused on water resources development and management, water demand management focuses on means to conserve existing sup plies through the reduction of demand wherever possible. It is essentially the control of the consumption of water. Surface water sources in the Western Cape may satisfy the growing water demand only up to about the year 2020. Wastewater recycling and desalination may be required after that time at very high cost.
