be fixed for a municipality to work well. Makana needs to identify these key points and address them.
Seeing the Municipality act will encourage people to go on with or start the daily business of using less water.
Yes, it is important, yes it will help – just do it.
What can we do ourselves?
First, we can minimise water use. If you take a bath, save the water to flush toilets. You can also save shower water if you stand in a bucket. Don’t run the tap until hot water starts without saving the cold water. That too can flush toilets, be used for rinsing vegetables, etc. If you can afford a rainwater tank (or better still, more than one), that is a great investment for the future. Even if the poorer residents can’t afford one, any decrease in demand for municipal supply helps.
Looking at the bigger picture, ecological restoration can protect our water resources, as invader species can be water-hungry and wetlands can dry out if the correct mix of vegetation is not maintained. More at https://bit. ly/2liglzv
