Per capita urban water use could be significantly reduced and urban water better managed through the use of new water technologies. This paper presents a review of some emerging and available technologies that can contribute to improving water efficiency. Technologies dealt with include water saving, leakage and pressure control, domestic water recycling technologies and large-scale interventions such as dual piping systems and desalination technologies. Each technology is reviewed, and the barriers to application are analysed. This is followed by a presentation of some measures and instruments available that can support the implementation of such technologies.
