There currently exists technologies in agriculture that help determine exact water needs, "no more, no less" so as not to waste water. There is also mention of the stresses to Canada's water sources as well as the aging water infrastructure. Additionally, communities currently have a way of recycling grey water, say from washing machines, and reusing it in irrigation. Lastly, it is emphasized that the use of 'green' infrastructure should be considered alongside the collection and effective use of rain water.
