F. A. Z.

Frankfurt consumes much more water than it promotes on its own the city. It uses water from the Hessian Ried, and lives of Water imported from the mountains and from Central Hessen. These imports should be reduced over the long term.

The allegation is that the fast-growing city of Frankfurt only consumes more water, but that the metropolis and the Metropolitan area groundwater waste. Are the critics right?

You have forgotten in the past 20 years, further efforts to saving water seeds to use. Especially in times of climate change, we must return again to the active water-saving policy. We need to deal with custom water and rain water are quite different. A great cost-saving option is to build gradually a completely independent, second hot water line into the water supply, so that we have lines with drinking water, with the highest water quality, with the we are careful, and pipes with hot water, to irrigate gardens and/or for toilet flushing use.

In the nineties has initiated in Frankfurt, a large water saving campaign. Experts say that the Per capita water consumption is hardly reduced even to. Washing machines, showers, toilets work extremely water-saving.

The Installation of the second piping system for domestic hot water is a very important Element to consume less drinking water. At the same time, Frankfurt will have to think how it can win more drinking water. The ground water in the urban forest would have to be enriched still further with a water Main to increase flow rates. The two major Control variables. DieFachwelt discussed them, but they still do not achieve the political Public sphere. The discussion in the back rooms of the experts. 2021 local elections, as the competition of the Industrious is in high demand actually.

domestic hot water in residential houses the use of requires rain water collected in cisterns, and the second network is to be built. This makes the Build even more expensive.

it should provide initially for new buildings. If it makes the Build actually more expensive, you have to see. But one thing is sure: If we don't have to deal with it now that our resources are limited, problems will be even greater. The two last summer were associated with extreme drought.

The vigil suggests that there is a urban-rural conflict for water. Really is that everywhere in the summer, the grass blown up, the swimming pools, so small they are also, drinking water to be filled.

of Course, many citizens are oriented completely wrong, if you are in the middle of the drought, your garden watering so that your lawn is green. This is no longer ecologically sustainable. Since we need to have a rethink. Regardless of where we are in the Rhine-Main area. A lawn needs to be allowed to be brown. If it is raining, driving the green again. The Situation we had in the last century, is over. Rhein-Main is an overall increase in the water shortage area.
