The concept of Water Imprint is a relatively new approach in defining the required amounts of water in water management activities. By dividing the water footprint into blue, green and gray water footprints, the quantities of water that circulate through the various water management activities can be defined. But the concept has its drawbacks and ambiguities and it can not be applied equally to all geographical areas. Greater analysis of the climatic characteristics of certain areas is needed and inclusion of all factors of natural pollution related to air, soil and water pollution that have a great impact in determining the required amounts of water necessary for the use of water supply to the population, industry and agriculture.
