Over the past twenty years, population growth and environmental pressures have reduced the relative availability of high quality potable water. The quality of water catchments, dams and underground aquifers have noticeably deteriorated worldwide. This general decline in water quality stems from the extreme demand on a very limited natural resource. No country is more aware of this than Australia, the second-driest continent in the world.
Groundwater and aquifers have been described as ticking chemical time bombs. The fresh water crisis is clear and well documented. Australia's experience of salinity issues and its responses are placing us at the forefront of initiatives designed to secure future supplies of this vital resource. The right of every human being to have ready access to fresh water must be proactively protected if an acceptable quality of life for future generations is to be reasonably assured.
