I believe there is a great misunderstanding among the general public when it comes to "High water use" industries. Many people think those individual factories actual consume the water within their manufacturing process and that after this procedure the water is simply lost and therefore depleted. Most of these facilities use the water as a cooling agent through a certain type of open or closed cooling system where the water generally gets ran through the system anywhere from 2 to 4 times before it gets discharged to a large tank, holding pond or even a municipality sewar system. Yes these facilities are large users, but they aren't large consumers. Is there a difference? Who are we to judge, many of those employees and investors say irrigation is a waste of a precious resource as well.

The term "industrial" is rather broad in potential effects.

 

Can you tell us what industry the plant is in?
