Water mismanagement

Financial Tribune – From official reports it is apparent the water authorities have failed to manage consumption in the country over the past ten decades.

The monstrous growth of cities and population explosion has created huge problems, one of which is the unacceptably high water consumption — a real crisis that should have been addressed long ago.

Potable water consumption, official numbers show, (around 200 liters per day per person) is at least 50 liters more than the global average.

What is more disturbing is the fact that the people of a country that has long been fighting drought and deep water deficits continue to consume the finite and valuable resource so injudiciously.
