General Manager of the Dominica Water and Sewerage Company, Bernard Etinoffe wants nationals to assist the company in managing the island’s water resources.
Etinoffe told reporters this week that in light of the current dry season, customers should manage their use of water.
“We should not waste at this time because if this drought continues for too long, we may have to take measures to ensure that conservation takes place. We are not fearful that we cannot provide water but we just want to alert our people that they should assist us,” he says.
Etinoffe assures, “We do not want to get to the point where we have to impose [measures]. We just want to educate people that they may not be able to water their lawns as frequently as they used to...[and they may have] to wash their cars less often and with less water.
“We are not at the point which Jamaica has reached; we still have an abundance of water with which God has blessed us.”
To maintain that blessing, Etinoffe says, everyone must do their part to conserve.
