Water woes

…so my city is without water – last night I had a shower, because we still had some, and we still had some this morning, but the pressure was down, and there is a definite turn for the worse. They say there is a problem at the water treatment plant – a friend who is a plumber for the city let slip, before he was muzzled. Hopefully the problem is resolved by now, but he reckons it will take the system 3 days to recover… Hmmm… reckon we are in for some smelly days… delightful!

But it makes one think. You, know, water is such a crucial part of our lives, and there are millions of people who live without water on tap. Maybe these 3 days will make my city appreciate what they actually have, and make us look after our resources a bit better.

But saying that, I think it’s easier to live without electricity than water…

I agree, we can do without electricity but having no water so not cool. Thankfully we have a pool we can use to flush the loo and we usually have 50l of filtered water in tanks in the kitchen but nothing really to bath with.

I agree – water is more important than electricity. Goodness – the infrastructures are just getting worse and worse

I wish people here in Gauteng would realise they need to be careful about water.

Oh gosh yes, way easier with electricity off than water. Hope it is sorted by now
