Solutions to water problems are available
published: Monday | October 27, 2003

THE EDITOR, Sir:

THE SUNDAY Gleaner lead article 'Is this Water Safe'? dated October 12, 2003 again brought to light the many problems that Jamaicans have to overcome to ensure adequate and clean water supply. However, residents of the country should know that there are options available to get the quality of water supply combined with the quantity that people desire and deserve. It requires a proactive approach and some long-term planning but options are out there, perhaps closer than ever thought.

Firstly, mineral deposits can be removed with water filtration systems. These complete systems can remove sediment, bacteria and viruses from all fresh water sources. Secondly, with regard to Portmore's "ticklish' water supply every morning and weekends, consumers could help themselves by replacing their existing toilets and showerheads with re-engineered low-flush flapperless toilets and low-flow showerheads respectively.

By investing in these products, consumers will be reducing their water consumption, perhaps Jamaica's most valuable commodity, while supporting real Jamaican businesses that trade in these products.

Procurement of these articles requires financial outlay to be true, but the amount is minimal as these products pay for themselves over time. Fortunately upon installation residents can enjoy immediate relief from the frustrations of their current situation. Perhaps the best part of this whole scenario is that these measures can be taken without waiting for the NWC, government, pastor, teacher and police.

Consumers can do something to improve their situation and by doing so positively contribute to the conservation of Jamaica's resources.

I am, etc.,
