The real culprits

I refer to the letter Conserving water for future generations (March 23). I congratulate the writer for highlighting an issue that begs for our immediate attention.

Having spent more than two decades in the production and distribution of water in the Gulf, I can say that men alone are not to be blamed for wasting water. Leakages are the major culprit in wasting water: Leaks from taps, water heaters and flush tanks. Stop these leakages and presto, your water bill will come down!
