first_img Share Tweet Sharing is caring! Water Resource Minister, Reginald AustrieMinister for Water Resource Management, Hon. Reginald Austrie wants nationals to become more conscious about water conversation.Water conservation refers to reducing the usage of water.Hon. Austrie made the appeal as he addressed residents of Grand Fond this week, as they witnessed the contract signing for commencement of work on a new water supply project.“Water is life but it’s also a scarce resource. Water is said to be more important than oil in the Middle East because you can live without oil but I’m not sure how long you can live without water. We must not waste it and we must not take it for granted… Let us close the taps and not allow water to run unnecessarily because the water you waste, a million people could do with just one drop of it.”He also noted to residents of Grand Fond that they know all too well about the inadequacies of the current water system in that community, so they too have to be conscious of the water consumption once the project has been completed.Government Information Service 25 Views   no discussionscenter_img LocalNews Water Resource Minister wants citizens to conserve water by: – June 15, 2012 Share Sharelast_img read more
