The private sector doesn’t have enough understanding about cost-benefit of compliance.
WARPO should set down evaluation parameters of industrial projects and strengthen its technical capacity and knowledge base to issue NOCs to the private sectors transparently and in time.

DoE enforces water quality regulations and prevents pollution while WARPO enforces water use and extraction-related regulations.
The DoE issues clearance to Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) of projects and approves, monitors, and enforces ETP-related compliance.
Water recycling industries should enjoy the same incentive.
The DoE should advise and incentivise the private sector about pathways to strengthen water recycling and recycling of sludge from wastewater treatment.
An online monitoring system should be established and water use should be directly monitored through installation of relevant technology in water supply lines / tube wells.
