THE EDITOR, Sir:
This is an open letter to the National Water Commission.
As a resident of the Michigan Estate Town House Complex, I wish to ask you, the National Water Commission (NWC), why we are being subjected to this terrible water supply which has being going on now for several weeks.
We were never notified by the NWC in the print media, or otherwise, that we were going to have frequent water lock-offs. On the night of Monday, September 17, 2012, for example, the water was turned off before 6 p.m.
Even on the morning of September 18, 2012, at 7 o'clock, there was still no water in our taps. Adults and children could not shower after work/school, or in the mornings before work/school.
We should have been notified in the print media that we were going to be subjected to this indignity.
Your logo is 'Water is Life'. It is no life to me when I cannot brush my teeth or flush my toilets.
Ironically, at the bottom of the hill at Chancery Hall, there is a NWC suboffice. The tank, just a few metres away from there, overflowed and the water ran all night on Friday, September 14, bathing the roads and scouring the drains. Meanwhile, there was not a drop in our taps.
