We must all save wa­ter

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

WIL­BUR Smith and his wife have ob­vi­ously not been keep­ing up with the se­ri­ous­ness of our wa­ter sit­u­a­tion in the Western Cape.

Do they not know that we have been asked to use only 87 litres per day per per­son?

An av­er­age wa­ter bill of R2 000 to R4 000 is ridicu­lous. Since May we have turned off the mu­nic­i­pal wa­ter sup­ply to our two toi­lets, and carry buck­ets of “grey wa­ter” col­lected in con­tain­ers from our laun­dry us­age and from the shower, or we use the well-point wa­ter.

We all have to do our bit and save ev­ery drop of wa­ter pos­si­ble – we know what the con­se­quences will be if we don’t.

It isn’t a mat­ter of money talks, it is a se­ri­ous mat­ter of no wa­ter in our taps come March.

If you can’t toe the line then I sug­gest you pack your bags and re­lo­cate.
