The amount of water available from a source can vary greatly between seasons, thus it is particularly important to ensure sustainable abstraction rates and protect water sources from over-use during dry seasons. Seasonal water rationing is an approach to control water use rates amongst different users based on the seasonal availability of water and socioeconomic priorities. Rationing may take the form of water use restrictions for certain purposes, in certain times, or certain areas. The aim is to maintain equitable use among different users, as well as high levels of water productivity, throughout the year.
