Re: Feasibility Study about water
I agree, the problem lies with poor management and if you read the news some of the top Central Water Authority people have been in the headlines recently and might have had a reshuffle up the job ladder when the company came under scrutiny. Surely, with the extremely high amounts we're paying for water and waste water, you would have expected a top service but no, they are not bothered.
I say get them pipes replaced ASAP and build a bloody dam or reservoir or whatever you want to call it in the North for bloody sake. How difficult can that be? There's plenty of land up there. The poor folks from the North seem to be suffering the most apart from Grand Bay where the tendency for CWA is to focus to keep the tourist village supplied.
We've got an empty Anjalay Coopen stadium in the North, use this as a water tank then, here you go this will solve it.
We should really invest in the desalination plant which had been mentioned on numerous occasions. How big the cost difference will be from replacing the old pipes and revamping the system compared to building this new plant. This is pioneer technology we're talking about and people in worst conditions are striving and living wonderful lives with no worries of a cut water supply or shortage. yes my friends I'm talking of the UAE and other Arab states where they pump desalinated water to the desert populated areas. Isn't that wonderful.
Sometimes I wonder if 49% of our water storage is getting leaked in pipes why do we have to pay extortion prices to the waste water authority? Let the CWA pay the WWA bills!
That was my rant but it should make sense I guess.
