While listening to the radio some minutes ago, I heard that the Central Water Authority (CWA) have announced that the special restrictions concerning wastage of water have now been lifted, at least temporarily. As per their say, the heavy rainfall of the last days have been beneficial to our reservoirs as well as boreholes. It looks like the most serious drought faced by Mauritius may soon be over.
According to the regulations what were valid since the 5th January 2011 :
No person shall without reasonable excuse, use any domestic supply or non domestic supply through a hosepipe, sprinkler or any similar apparatus, or in any wasteful manner
- To wash any vehicle
- To wash any pavement, building or part of any building
- To water any hedge or lawn
I still can’t find the logic why they are now allowing wastage of water in the above mentioned forms while they said that water distribution in some regions will still be under control for the forthcoming days.
Isn’t constant and reliable water supply more important for our domestic use (and for drinking)? Blindly allowing people to waste water while some regions are deprived of this basic necessity for hours?
Anyways, I will finally be able to wash my car after nearly 6-7 weeks LOL. and what abt you? 😛
