With the hike in water price and the drive to reduce water wastage, let us get serious about the matter.
I urge all management councils of condominiums and executive condominiums to install coin-operated water dispensers at all carparks within their estate.
This is to conserve water and to ensure that the cost of water used exclusively for washing vehicles is not unfairly passed on to the minority of residents who do not own cars or motorcycles.
The authorities should expedite the approval for the deployment of such devices.
The taps in all common toilets within the estate should also be converted to prevent water hoses from being connected to them.
The initial costs of plumbing can be recovered through savings resulting from the long-term reduced usage of water.
