How to tackle water problems in connection with countries similar to Malta with small surface area and little rainfall



How to tackle water problems in connection with countries similar to Malta with small surface area and little rainfall



Selected Water Problems in Islands and Coastal Areas: 335-340



Techniques employed in Malta to combat water shortages and aquifer salinization problems are borehole drilling programs, improving water quality by blending hard or brackish water with distillate or fresh borehole water, combatting leakages in the distribution network to save an estimated 50% loss, water conservation by afforestation and damming, and waste water recycling.
