Water consumption in Qatar increased by 70 percent in the seven years up to 2013, the first ever water statistics published by Doha revealed yesterday.
More than 740 million cubic metres (26 billion cubic feet) of water were used in 2013, up from just over 437 million in 2006, reflecting the country’s rapid expansion, figures from the Ministry of Development Planning and Statistics (MDPS) show.
“Government” water consumption grew the most during that time period, increasing by almost 400 percent, said the MDPS.
Industry use was up by more than 200 percent, though the biggest consumers were agriculture and residential households. (Source / Image)
