Awareness and Acceptance of the Public Regarding Alternative Water Sources
In recent years, there have been publications presenting the opinions of various communities regarding their adoption and implementation of centralized and decentralized rainwater harvesting and graywater recycling systems, but this was mainly for countries outside Europe. Considering the above, the research was carried out in selected European countries whose aim was to determine the factors influencing society’s reluctance to use gray water and rainwater. The analysis of the results allowed determining the level of awareness about water shortages, water-saving behavior, and the attitude of respondents to alternative water sources. The analysis also took into account demographic and external factors such as geographical location and climate, which may affect the results.
