PUB pushing households to save water

PUB pushing households to save water

SINGAPORE: National water agency PUB is making another push to get households to save water, with a water conservation awareness programme. It includes three TV commercials with two focusing on high water consumption activities at home. About half the water used in the home goes to the shower and the kitchen sink. Showers make up 29 per cent of an average family's monthly water use, while the kitchen sink, 22 per cent. One way to cut down on water wastage is to install thimbles in taps and showerheads. Another is to work with maid employment agencies to teach domestic workers to use water efficiently. So far, more than 10 agencies have come on board and sent their trainers to the course. PUB said it plans to reach out to all maid agencies in the next few years.
