Look for other resources of water supply

2015-06-03 06:00

Sir, THE last issue of the Greytown Gazette quoted mayor Thami Ngubane’s word: and#034;Umvoti water supply is no longer a crisis, it is now a disasterand#034;.

Our crisis is man-made. If we govern on an ad hoc basis­ then that is when the problem arises.

We look for solutions, we even resort to prayer and as Shakespeare says: and#034;There are more things wrought in prayer than this world dreams of.and#034;

The same divinity has given­ us a mind and an intellect to look at problems and find solutions. Since 1994 we have had democratically elected local governments that should take responsibility for these failures

There must be planning on issues decades ahead because we have a growing population, housing projects, etc.

The Craigieburn Dam project will be in operation in 2017, but projects are generally delayed beyond their time frame.

Let us continue looking for other sources of water supply as water is a rare commodity worldwide.
