Water saving measures needed
We have had a water crisis before, although not as serious as this.
Why has it not been made compulsory for all new houses to have a water tank?
This water can be used for flushing the toilets, when the tank runs dry then the town supply kicks in, or for watering gardens etc.
Also, as in parts of Canada, there could be an automatic ban, which starts at the beginning of summer every year, on using hoses or sprinklers between the hours of 10am and 4pm. This ban is regardless of the water situation. It is like daylight saving, it is done as a matter of course, in fact the ban could start the same time as daylight saving.
Let’s face it water is going to be our greatest concern in the future, why wait until it happens, start saving now.
