Other uses of water, recreational activities (Spain)

The amount of water used for recreational purposes has increased a lot over the past decades, mainly in swimming pools, water parks and golf courses.

It is estimated that the annual consumption of water needed to maintain a standard golf course for a year would allow for provisioning villages of about 8,ooo inhabitants for a year, or four times the size of Morella.
