Multiple Use Water Services (MUS) meet people’s domestic and productive needs (drinking, cooking, washing, sanitation, watering animals, growing food and generating income).while making the most efficient use of water resources - taking into account different water sources and their quality, quantity, reliability and distance from point of use. Using a MUS approach generates a broader range of health and livelihood benefits than is possible with single-use systems.[Source: MUS Group, 2013.
