World Water Day: Let's Make Every Drop of Water Count

Don't be a water waster

Today is World Water Day and considering our country's current water shortage, it's that much important for us to pay attention. According to the The City of Cape Town, the Western Cape only has about 103 days of water left; the six dams in Cape Town have less than 20% of usable water left.

According to United Nations, "World Water Day, on 22 March every year, is about taking action to tackle the water crisis. Today, 1.8 billion people use a source of drinking water contaminated with faeces, putting them at risk of contracting cholera, dysentery, typhoid and polio".

The UN is currently holding a seminar in Durban where they are highlighting the devastating effects of the lack of clean drinking water for many citizens of the world. They will be launching the World Water Development Report 2017: Wastewater, The Untapped Resource. A live stream of the event can be found here.
