However, moreso than the topics themselves, we're here today to discuss does Privatization of water do any more harm than it does good? That remains to be seen, yet there is an indication of truth to be considered.
First off, Privatization of water has already happened, to a far more extreme extent than most people realize. In Canada, water is used often for industrial purposes, as I have seen in the case of a local pulp papermill. They have "water rights" to drain a massive freshwater lake through a pipeline right into their privately owned mill. If thats not an example of industrial aquatic procurement and water privatization i'm not sure what is. To summarize: Water Privatization in Industry is already prevalent in water rights. Most people just don't know where to look. Industry uses water every day.
What about Commercial Privatization of water, like at a Car Wash? They're paying for access to water which they use to clean cars. An example of a massive private water operation, where commercial businesses profit from the use of water. This is just one example- what about a water bottler? In Canada, they pay next to nothing for their water rights even though they take millions of litres a year purely for the monetization of the natural resource. So Water Privatization happens in business too.
What about in everyday life? Do you use a well or a waterline at your residence? That's Water Privatization too. Private water rights if it's a municipal service, and private water ownership if it's from a well.
In many ways the question needs to be reapproached because water privatization seems to do more good than harm, already, everyday, on an international scale. It does more good than harm by definition.
I have prepared points on both how it exists today and why, would you like to rebuttal or should I continue making points to support my argument? Because it won't be possible for me to refute arguments you haven't made yet.
And to be clear" the topic worth debating is the debate topic.
