The role played by water in human activity is crucial. The resources of this fundamental asset are scarce and demand is constantly on the rise due to population growth and ever higher levels of development.
This is why it is necessary to rationalise water usage and ensure that when it is returned to nature, its condition is such that it can be reused.
Asturias, despite being a privileged region as far as water is concerned, must nonetheless learn to take care and make the most of this precious and limited natural resource.
The Water Consortium of Asturias plays a part in solving the problems involved in supplying drinking water to the syndicated municipal councils located in the Central Area of the Region and purifying the wastewater generated by the majority of population centres within the Principality of Asturias.
