Added Water Sector to the Sustainable Design wikipedia article

Contributed today to wikipedia on the Sustainable Design entry. One of the main things I have observed in water management is the lack of concience in terms of consumption, from a general aspect to what is consumed for drinking.

How can it be that 100% of the water we consume, to water our gardens, wash the car, wash our clothes, etc... has to be of drinking water quality. Only very recently in Australia has some change been seen in this, with incentives to store water with Rainwater Harvesting. However these incentives have several sources, some are quite political and related to water restrictions and the imperative of offering solutions to citizens that seem so obvious.

The concept that is being promoted today is "fit-for-purpose", which seems much more reasonable than what used to managed.
