The most important lesson for us on the Cape Town water crisis is that we implement measures that all households of the City have now been compelled to. Many throughout the country use water in a mind-set that supply is limitless. For many years the drought situation is a stark reality in our country and Government has failed – apart from having balked at future planning and activating/implementing sustainable measures of water security – to have a drive in place to raise the consciousness of its citizens of the Day Zero nightmare scenario in Cape Town.
At the same time it is despicable that politicians are focusing on political mileage rather than working with their sleeves folded above their elbows and coming forward with solutions.The best and most powerful things that we can do as citizens is to be proactive in implementing water saving and conservation measures in our daily lives. Listings of how to do this abound on the internet.
