Make hay while sun shines

THE EDITOR, Sir:

We can be thankful that we as a country managed to escape the near-yearly problem of water shortage this year. There was not a terrible drought during the summer as has been the case in recent years, and no consequent water rationing from the National Water Commission. But, let us not fall victim to complacency. We need a proper water plan to meet the growing demands of the swelling population and even in times of plenty (rain) such as the one we are in currently, we should remember that the proverbial wolf is always scratching at the door. Let us make use of this time to avoid problems in the future.
