The population of Luxembourg looks set to continue increasing. It is estimated that by 2024 it could reach 560 000 to 605 000 inhabitants, giving rise to an overall increase in the demand for drinking water (estimated at between 47 and 51 million m3). To ensure an adequate supply of drinking water, new sources (underground and surface) will have to be developed.
