MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Just when the heat index is reaching astronomic proportions, the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) wants Local Government Units (LGUs) to ban certain activities as a way of conserving water.
MWSS wants to temporarily ban inflatable pools and car washing, saying these waste a lot of water. It also recommended that Filipinos limit their showering to once a week.
The agency said it needs the cooperation of citizens and businesses to help avert any water shortage and service interruptions.
Environmentalists immediately praised the MWSS proposal and demanded that LGU’s implement it ASAP.
