Answer to water crisis

2015-12-09 06:00

THERE has been much advice given to householders to conserve water in various ways to prevent water wastage.

I want to ask the authorities or experts in this field, who look into this problem, to think about retaining water that otherwise would flow freely into the sea.

The idea I thought of is to build high walls downstream to act as mini-dams. These walls can be erected with quick-drying concrete. This stored water can then be pumped back to the main dams.

This method I think, should be the first thing the authorities tackle to avert the water crisis.

I hope the authorities give this suggestion serious thought and go for it.

Remember, the current weather conditions and drought may go on for years, a what will you do then? Please act now.
