Secure supply for all
In Frankfurt, the drinking water supply must be enough for some 680,000 inhabitants as well as for more than 300,000 commuters – although the latter consume less water. The quantities of water consumed and the water supply systems therefore cater for over one million consumers a day.
Between 1900 and 2001, the city of Frankfurt am Main reduced its drinking water consumption by around 28 per cent through the project “Sensible water use in Frankfurt am Main”. This achievement has so far been maintained.
