Letter to Editor, The Star
by Alice Tong, Kuala Lumpur.


I REFER to “Rising to the water challenge” (Sunday Star, March 20).

Water reaches us conveniently in the comfort of our homes. But how many of us residents of Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya realise that we might be facing a threat of water supply shortage come 2014?

It is reported that the Federal Government foresees water supply shortage by 2014. If so, the Government should take imperative steps to ensure sufficient supply, and not let the residents in these three territories be the victims of politics.

Every individual also plays an important role in conserving water and it should start from home.

For example, the water I use to bath my baby is also used to flush the toilet, wash the bathroom or mop the floor. The water I use to soak the vegetables is used to rinse the dishes after meals.

The crux of the matter is to educate the public. We should act hand in hand in conserving water and making sure that we have sufficient water to go on comfortably.

Leaking pipes should be reported immediately. Children should be taught in school and at home to use water wisely.

It is also crucial to educate the public on proper waste disposal. Rivers should be preserved because they are a source of water supply.
