Location of water sources in Morocco

As the country develops and Westernizes, many modern changes can be noted in the people living in major cities such as Rabat, Casablanca and Tangier, while Fes and Marrakesh maintain the traditions of old world Morocco. In smaller towns and rural areas a much different lifestyle exists, and it can be hard to believe that in a country a little larger than the size of California, such a difference exists. In the cities, you will find cars, buses, and taxis making the streets noisy and busy while tall buildings penetrate the skyline. Yet, in the rural areas a camel or donkey is the mode of transportation among the small houses and farmlands or dessert landscapes. The convenience of cafes, restaurants, and grocery stores are nonexistent in these places and people often rely on trading goods rather than purchasing them. Modern cities in Morocco receive more water than others as they can afford infrastructure to build dams and reservoirs.

  • PLUS- He is selling water for people
  • MINUS- It might not be fresh water
  • ITERESTING- All drink vendors in Morocco all where that costume

I think Morocco can stop water scarcity by using desalination to access fresh water as another option of water because most of the rivers are polluted and mixing with other clean resources.
