Making more water available, e.g. through the construction of public boreholes and pumps to bring out ground water, can make a big difference to people living in rural areas in developing countries. This is so not only to the poor who in many places lack reliable supplies drinking water, but also to the better-off who may become able to water bigger herds of cattle and bigger gardens. Therefore, competition for water often intensifies when more water becomes available.
