Urbanització difusa i consum d’aigua per a usos domèstics: una exploració de relacions

In the Mediterranean, which suffers from persistent problems of water availability, the outdoor water uses of detached and semi-detached dwellings (swimming pools, gardens, orchards, etc.) are an important factor to understand why this residential model is associated with higher water consumption per capita than high-density residential areas. However, other features of the urban model and its dwellings might turn out to be decisive for understanding and estimating the water metabolism of these urban residential areas. This paper seeks to clarify the interrelationship between these urban processes and social patterns of domestic water consumption, especially in low-density urban areas, while focusing on gardening practices and different outdoor water uses ​
