The development of private bore-well s as independent water supplies: chall enges for water utilities in France and Australia

Le développement des forages individuels vu comme des sources d'eau autonomes : les défis pour les gestionnaires d'eau en France et en Australie

Abstract

In developed countries, a number of factors are leading a growing number of households to drill private boreholes as independent water supplies. This chapter describes this phenomenon based on two case studies conducted in Southern France and Western Australia. It shows that, while the development of private wells was encouraged by the authorities in Perth, it is a major source of environmental, public health, economic and social concern for French water utilities. Household's motivations to develop independent supply are then investigated. We finaly discuss how water utilities need to adapt their management practices (setting tariffs, demand forecasting and resource protection) to take into account this phenomenon.
