Japan's water market is very impressive, boasting very low water losses due to its earthquakeresistantpipelines and emphasis on infrastructure efficiency. The country also has very high water qualityand repeatedly passes new stricter regulations. Japan is, however, subject to monsoons, and suffers fromsevere droughts approximately every 10 years. Water distribution between agricultural, industrial anddomestic users is therefore sometimes difficult and needs careful management.In recent news, there has been the potential for groundwater contamination following the nuclear meltdownat Fukushima after the earthquake in March 2011. This may affect market confidence and public opinion.Domestic users are constantly demanding higher water quality in Japan due to an increased awareness ofpathogens - and there is a keen focus on the constant improvement of water treatment technology and heavyinvestment in this segment of the water sector.
