Once again we’ve hit the dry season in Mauritius and as usual when we open our taps, nothing happens or if you are incredibly lucky, you get a thin silvery trickle.
If water is not running from your tap it doesn’t mean that it’s the same everywhere – though I’m now forced to shower with cold water (not enough water pressure) in the morning and recently in the evening as well (thank you God, the dry season isn’t in winter) I know of regions in Mauritus where the pressure has only decreased – nothing more than that ( I won’t tell you where – that’s Mauritius – instead of giving those who have no water they’ll cut where water is flowing from taps). Anway as George Orwell taught us in Animal Farm, everyone is equal but some are more equal than others!
But do we really lack water? The water level in our reservoir is “decreasing at an alarming rate” and we need to save water (except the 40% that lost because there are holes in the pipes of the water system). So when there is a hole in a pipe, be sure to repair it and inform the CWA about it (but who is to inform them about the 40% water leakage in their own pipes).
Anyway that’s Mauritius!
