Abstract

At the beginning of this new millennium we have a water crisis which threatens human's existence in many parts of the world. One might ask, how sustainable is it to live in a world where approximately 1.1 billion people lack safe drinking water, approximately 2.6 billion people lack adequate sanitation, and between 2 and 5 million people die annually from water-related diseases (Gleick, 2005)?
