The steel plant would use a huge amount of river water. This might cause drinking water scarcity in the location. Which of these is the best method to solve this problem?

Reduce air pollution in the location to increase the amount of rainfall.
Ban all water sports in the location to prevent excess use of river water.
Plant more trees in the location to increase the amount of surface water.
Formulate appropriate reviews and controls to prevent excess use of river water.
