Are you being water smart?

This year in Auckland, we have a problem that we haven’t had in ages. A huge storm have came to attack Auckland in the 11th of March 2017, that caused the silts have came down to the water that we used from. The Water care have set a target for us that we should be only using 400 million meter a day. But we are using 419 million meter a day. Do you know that if you keep on using a lot of water this we’ll have to boil the water before we use it?

Tips that will help Watercare to get rid of the dirty water.
  1. Only shower for 2 minutes.
  2. Turn off the tap when you are putting soap on
  3. Turn off the tap as soon as you finished washing your hands.
  4. Wash your paint brush in a glass of water

If we don’t save water, we’ll have no clean water in Auckland. Imagine if we only have dirty water left we’ll have to boiled the water before we use it. Dirty water will also affect our health. You might get diseases like campylobacteriosis, cryptosporidiosis and giardiasis.
