It’s time Sewa pulled up its socks

AN OFFICIAL source in the Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (Sewa) commented on the complaints of the customers regarding the practice of disrupting water supply in several places in the Sharjah emirate, saying that the main reason behind that was the pressure on water plants in the summer season, as well as growing consumption levels.

He said that the authority was doing its best to return the situation to normal within two weeks. But the question that arises is why does the authority not take any measures to prepare its water plants for the summer season?

Don’t we know that summer is coming, and in summer, the consumption levels of water increase dramatically. In fact, the Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority should prepare itself for such a situation as it has an opportunity to manage its resources in the winter to be ready for the summer.

There’s no doubt that water is the essence of life. It isn’t a luxury. No one can live without water, so the Sewa should be prepared in winter itself to confront the problems in summer. Nowadays, the continuous disruption in water supply — sometimes extending up to several days in a week — forces the inhabitants to go to the mosques and other areas where water is available. And some of them go straight to the water bottling companies.
